Passing An excellent circular walk, not too hard, or long or high, which encompasses views and aspects of both sides of the range. through the narrow Paso Contador (much enlarged since the days when sheep could be counted singly as they passed). Spectacular views of the Sierras Bernia and Aixorta to the east and the Arc valley leading to Sella to the west. Soon followed by a stiff climb over the ridge of El Carrascal with a shady place at the summit from which to admire Puig Campana and Sanxet before descending into the wooded Sanxet valley with its Buddhist colony. Returning over the lip of Sanxet, (pause to take in the views), to pass below the "waterfall," (occasional), and the overwhelming cliffs of the "Habitaciones de Dios", followed by a gentle descent to the 3 Bars and Restaurants in the Rincon de Pepe area.
60% paths. 40% tracks. Not too muddy a day or so after rain.

CIRCUIT: RINCON DE PEPE—CONTADOR—El CARRASCAL RIDGE—BUDDHIST COLONY- COLLADO DE SANXET—RINCON DE PEPE.
