Anillo de Picos de Europa. Central Massif
The Urrielles Massif or Central Massif of the Picos de Europa, located between the valleys carved by rivers Cares and Duje is undoubtedly the most rugged, that higher slopes presents and where the highest and most representative peaks of the National Park of Picos de Europa are located, as Torrecerredo maximum altitude of these mountains and all the Cantabrian Mountains Range with 2,648 meters or Picu Urriellu (Naranjo de Bulnes), authentic symbol of the Asturian mountain and National Park. It's in this massif where these mountains reach its climax, with an insurmountable mountain environment, concentrating a large number of peaks in a relatively small surface, unmatched in any other mountains of the peninsula, where there are other highest mountains, but not so wild, and inaccessible.

Will travel for five days, from hut to hut, this impressive and demanding Massif, knowing some of the most emblematic and beautiful places of Picos de Europa National Park.

Program:
Meeting point: Poncebos cablecar parking. Duration: 5 days.

Day 1: On our first day of trekking, depart from Puente Poncebos (218m) to perform the famous, popular and spectacular Ruta del Cares, one of the most impressive gorges in the world, until the village of Cain (460m), where we'll stay at the Refuge Hostel "el Diablo de la Peña" where we spend our first night of trekking. This start of trekking, we will "warm up" for the slopes that await us in posteriors days.

Day 2: Beautiful and hard day in which we will enter the Central Massif, and that will take us from Cain (460m), saving a significant vertical drop, to the shelter of Collado Jermoso (2.046m). The route will take us going up the Cares river, valley and mountain of Corona, where we'll visit the "Chorco de los lobos", for entering in the Asotin Channel, through the beautiful beech forest of the same name that will leave us in the Asotin sheepfold, beautiful and spectacular place. From here we'll ascend to Collado Jermoso shelter, located in one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in the National Park. Located on the edge of a cliff and surrounded by the peaks of the Llambrión group, opposite the spectacular Friero Tower, and with magnificent views of the valley of Valdeón and the Cornión Massif, with Peña Santa peak always emphasizing. Despite the long day, everyone will be satisfied to stay in such a place.

Day 3: This day will pass through the heights of the Central Massif, being rarely below 2,000 meters.
