The Wild Road to Coll de Triadó
Coll de Triadó is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.172m (7,125ft) above the sea level, located in the municipality of La Torre de Cabdella, in the province of Lleida in the autonomous community of Catalonia, in northern Spain.
The road to the summit, also known as Coll del Triador, is totally unpaved. It’s called Pista del Triador. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable.
The road is usually impassable from November to May. Starting from Espui, the track is 12 km long and the gradient average is 7.5 %. Nestled in the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park, the drive offers impressive views of Vall Fosca and Pallars Sobirà. It's one of the highest roads of Spain.
