have walked a couple of minutes. The track keeps ascending in the shade

After passing a fountain and crossing a bridge met immediately, you
encounter signposts on your left (30min) (1415 m). Follow the sign for "Cascada del Cinca".

forming one waterfall rushing further down (1h18min) (1715 m).
Return the same way back to the parking place (2h30min).
You can also make a circuit by taking the path called "Camino de
Montespro" from the junction. However this path is steep and in
some places very narrow. Higher up the going gets increasingly
vertigenous. The route crosses first a leafy forest and then opens up
views to the glaciers of the Monte Perdido behind you and over the
valley of Pineta. If you choose this route, follow carefully the
white-yellow waymarks. Make sure that after walking some 40 minutes (1970
m) you branch off left. The path goes round the gorge of Montasio to the
opposite slopes of the valley and descends to the plain of Larri, where
you take a track downhill. On your way you pass some magnificent
waterfalls. This route takes four hours.
