Collado de Urdiceto

Collado de Urdiceto

Collado de Urdiceto is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.330m (7,644ft) above the sea level, located in the comarca of Ribagorza, province of Huesca, in northern Spain. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit, also known as Collado de Ordizeto, is gravel. 4x4 vehicle required. It’s steep and narrow, impassable for 2 cars at the same time. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. Near the summit is a mountain refuge called Refugio del Paso de los Caballos.
