The circular route of the Cinquè Llac, divided into 5 stages, crosses the mountains of the Lleida Pyrenees, following old trails used to transport livestock.
The Cinquè Llac or Fifth Lake, is a circular route half way up the mountain for all kinds of walkers, which starts and finishes in la Pobla de Segur. It runs through the regions of Pallars Jussà, Pallars Sobirà and Alta Ribagorça, with spectacular landscapes, such as Pla de Corts, la Vall Fosca, la Vall de Manyanet and the Montcortès lake. The route, which is 100 km long, is well signposted and divided into 5 stages: Peramea, Beranui, Les Esglésies, Senterada and back to la Pobla de Segur, At the end of each stage are establishments offering a place to rest and spend the night. The Montcortès lake can be seen throughout most of the route, but it can only be reached in the last stage. Most of the route runs through bridle paths and mountain trails (62%) which the shepherds once roamed with a ganxo in their hand a long cane made from a hazelnut tree to catch the sheep by the hind legs, crossing rural areas and villages which have retained their character and traditions, in addition to a trail full of legends. Gastronomy is another of the area's main attractions, with recipes including dishes such as trout, aioli (garlic mayonnaise) with quince, Xisqueta lamb and Tupí cheese. All washed down with wines from the Costers del Segre Designation of Origin.
