Snowshoeing at the top of the Puigmal from the Vall de Núria

Puigmal is probably the most emblematic peak in the Eastern Pyrenees, it is the highest in the area with 2910 meters above sea level. It is located just above the Vall de Núria, a beautiful valley surrounded by peaks of almost 3000 meters which makes it an ideal place for hiking.
