How to get there: Drive on the AS-264 to Poncebos, where you find a sign for the Funicular de Bulnes between the kilometer posts 6 and 7. Take the carriage to Bulnes. The ride takes some 10 minutes and the return ticket cost 18 euros in 2008. (Roadmap)

Distance: 3h30min/8km

Walk from the station some six minutes to the village of Bulnes. Right after entering the village you see on the left hand side of the road, before the bridge, a sign for "Pandébano, GR203" (645 m). Take the path with the white-red waymarks by the sign. The brook of Tejo follows the route on your right. Later you cross the brook two times. Right after the second crossing the path forks (47min) (925 m). Go right.

Looking behind you see the Monte Castiello. In the south, the Pico de Albo is the highest of all visible peaks.

You cross a brook again (1h04min) (1020 m) and come to another fork (1h07min) (1035 m), where you continue to the left. However, you can visit the stone cottage with a fountain in front of you to take a look at the green slopes surrounding it.

Keep right at the next fork (1h15min) (1075 m). After crossing a brook (1h24min) (1130 m) you go through a gate (1h27min) (1130 m). In the south, the route is lined by the mountain range of Urrieles.

The ascent becomes gentler and you pass a couple of stone cottages, one of them with a fountain (1h41min) (1185 m). When you reach the pass of Pandébano, cross the grassy field (1h51min) (1220 m) to look down to the valley, where you see Sotres. In the southwest rises the Diente de Urriellu, between the mountains of Cuetos de Albo and Naranjo de Bulnes.

Return on the same way back to Bulnes (3h30min).
