narrow asphalt road with white-yellow waymarks bends right (2 min)
facing the Monte Ponoch
meets a wide asphalt road (10min) (270 m). Cross it and continue left on a
narrow road. It bends right and turns into a sand road (26 min) (330 m)
that starts to follow the gorge
of Gulapdar. When
you reach a small clearing with signs, turn left uphill for Cami de
Guard Dar and Cami de L'Almasere (30 min) (350
Ponoch rises on your left.
On your way to Casa del Dios ignore all tracks and paths that fork
from the main road.
Casa del Dios (1h10min) (645 m) is a blue building with a name plate
on it. By the house you find a number of signs including "Polop
Circular por el Salt, 20.750 km". Turn left to this signposted
road. From Casa del Dios you have a lovely view over the bay
The road narrows into a track and forks by a small house standing on
the left hand side of the track (1h18min) (695 m). Go right uphill. The
track turns into a path.
del Llam (1h50min) (895m), you find again a sign for "Polop
Circular por el Salt". Follow it to the right. Some 15 meters
higher up, on your left, you see a cave, which is a good place to take a
When the path forks, keep left (1h57min). It leads down and turns
into a track (2h02min) (855 m). On your left, you see Monte
semicircular wall crowned by jagged teeth.
In Caserio de Zacarets (2h28min) (730 m) you can get water and rest
under a huge pine tree. Bending left down
on the track, you see signs. Go
right to "Polop por el Salt" towards Alto
de la Peña Sella. Follow this main track
in a beautiful mountain
all forking tracks until you meet another track with a sign
"Polop". Turn on this track uphill to the right (2h51min)
You see a sign "Gujialoka" on the right side of the track
(2h59min). From here on, a number of tracks and paths part to the
buildings and groves of the Buddist monastry. Keep on the main track until you meet
a big building with a sign "Massia del Papachi"
(3h40min) (865 m). Walk straight ahead leaving the house to the right.
Now you have a view to the rockwalls
of Sanxet. When the track forks again (3h44min), go right, and almost
immediately after that take the lower track on the left that slopes
down. By a ruined building, the track turns into a path (3h53min)
The path runs by the house and starts zigzaging steeply downwards.
Later it snakes its way down more gently.
it climbs gently to massive perpendicular walls that rise
orange, black and white
high above you. For a while the route goes close
to these walls, before
it starts descending again. Looking up you probably discover goats
looking down on you from the cliffs. If the weather is rainly, the clouds
sweep down along the rockwalks hiding the top of the rockwall.
When you see ruins of a small house on your
right, take a path that goes downhill towards the ruins (4h39min) (710
This path leads through bushes to a house where it meets a track
(4h51min) (640 m). Turn left. When the track forks (4h57min) (600 m),
keep going straight ahead, not downhill to the left.
By Casa del Dios (5h13min), turn downhill to the left and descend
back to the bar (6h15min).
