Lo Vallat d'Estaon

The Vallat d'Estaon is a secondary river valley of the Vall de Cardós, formed by the river d'Estaon that flows into the Noguera de Cardós passing through the Central del Pubill which supplied electricity to the towns in the area.

Through this beautiful and quiet valley, the GR-11 passes, a long-distance route that crosses the Pyrenees from the Cantabrian Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, a total of 800 km of paths, villages, forests, rivers and shelters.

The fauna

The Alt Pirineu Natural Park is home to a very diverse fauna.

The river trout, the grouse, the loon, the bear, the chamois, the frogs, the eagle, the woodpecker, the sheep, the horses, the cows, among others.

The most important thing when it comes to maintaining the balance of the ecosystem and the harmony of the space is to respect the environment, maintaining silence and leaving it clean of rubbish.
