Lake Covadonga, Cangas de Onis

4.7
Set in Spain’s oldest national park amongst mountains and green meadows lies Lake Covadonga, which is in fact two lakes. The first is Lake Enol, 1,070 m (3,510 ft) above sea level. Walk around the lake and look for free-roaming cows. Then set off to Lake Ercina, 1,108 m (3,635 ft) above sea level. Ambitious walkers can explore further from here, accessing more remote areas of the park. Refuel and rest weary legs in the cafe at this lake. Cars are not permitted to drive up to the lakes in the height of the tourist season, but a bus is available. Outside of tourist season, nervous drivers should opt for a tour bus or taxi, as the road is very winding and can get misty.

    The truth is that this very well but I expected more, it does not take much to see them and if you enter before 8.30 h can upload with the coxhe instead of having to pay the bus. There are places to eat but something priced but has areas that you can eat if you take food.

    Summer hours of 8 AM to 8 PM you can not upload particular drive and you have to take the ALSA. But a great choice is to climb at 8 PM and see sunset between two lakes. If it is a clear day better but if it is a cloudy don't raise you can be above make a magnificent day and see the clouds below.
