Tuc de Saumet

Tuc de Saumet

Tuc de Saumet is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.446m (8,024ft) above the sea level, located in the Val d'Aran, a valley in the Pyrenees mountains in the northwestern part of the province of Lleida, in Catalonia, northern Spain. It's one of the highest roads of the country. 

Located within the Baqueira-Beret ski station, the road to the summit is a chairlift access trail. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. The track to the summit includes several narrow and steep sections (up to 25%).
The road to the summit is passable only in summers. It’s brutally tough with roughly sections, on very rocky, slippery path / ski piste at occasionally impossible steepness. The road follows the unpaved ski-lift service road. With such a high summit altitude the road can be closed anytime due to snowfalls.
