The biggest lake of the Pyrenees is in our county, the lake of Certascan, and the highest peak of Catalonia, la Pica d'Estats.
El Pallars SobirÓ has traditionally been chosen as one of the most suitable regions for mountain sports. Apart from the uncountable ascents to many of our peaks, along the northern region the GR 11 and the Pyrenean High Route go across the mountain range. Two of the most popular and most visited summits are la Pica d'Estats, the highest peak in Catalonia, and the AigŘesTortes and the Lake of Sant Maurici National Park. But the trail options to do some trekking and hiking are countless, thanks to the great network of high mountain refuges.
The most important areas for climbing are in Collegats, Certescans and AigŘesTortes and the Lake of Sant Maurici National Park (especially in Amitges, Vall de Gerber, Pla de la Font, JM Blanc, Sant Maurici and Coma de l'Abeller)
There are some potholes and caves to do some speleology, although it is not one of the most popular sports in the area.
