Description

O Courel is an area of rich meadows and idyllic hamlets that also contains some high peaks, such as the 1,294-metre A Cobaluda, an ideal spot for surveying the splendour of these mountains.

At this altitude the typical forests and meadows of the area, and even its pine groves, give way to low lying heathers and broom, bringing colour to the mountains when they are not covered in snow.

Its steep slopes, sweeping vistas and mountainous terrain make A Cobaluda the perfect spot from which to appreciate the immensity of the O Courel range, from the neighbouring peak, the well-known Pía Paxaro (1,610 metres) in the north-east, to Formigueiros, at 1,641 metres the highest peak of the O Courel mountains.
