Coll de Melanell is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.971m (6,466ft) above the sea level, located in the province of Girona, Catalonia, in north-eastern Spain, near the French border.
Located in the eastern region of the Pyrenees mountain range, the road to the summit is unpaved. It’s called Camí de Fontlletera (GIV-5265). The track is 28.9 km long and links the villages of Ribes de Freser and Tregurà de Dalt.
Recommended from late spring to early fall, since you´ll go through mountain roads where there is often snow. SUV or all-road vehicles recommended. Along the way you can enjoy a high mountain environment typical of the Pyrenees area.
