Mythical Pedraforca

Pedraforca is one of the most emblematic mountains in Catalunya. Its name alludes to its strange shape (“stone fork”). The upper ridge has an elevation of 2.506m and it is a mythical mountain for hikers and climbers. People say that it is also a magical mountain. A legend tells that during the night of 31st December, bitches meet at Pedraforca for partying all night.

This not an easy mountain and I did not try to reach the top this time. I just wanted enjoy its landscapes and to hike at high altitude to prepare the Inca Trail, two months later. Actually, now that I think about it, this can be considered one of my first hikes!
