THE HIGHEST PEAK IS THE COMA PEDROSA MOUNTAIN AT 2,942 METRES (9,652 FT) IN THE NORTHWEST of ANDORRA, CLOSE TO THE BORDERS WITH FRANCE AND SPAIN.
Andorra is located in the Eastern Pyrenees mountain range, and mountains dominate its landscape with the lowest point of the country being 840 metres (2,756 ft) above sea level.
From December to March, the snow and ice cover the peak, ridges and surroundings, making it extremely challenging to climb the mountain without proper equipment. This time of the year offers a great opportunities for skiers. Hikers should be experienced and equipped with ice axes and crampons.
However, the ideal time to climb the Pic de Coma Pedrosa is from the end of May to October, both because of the easy access and because of the vivid natural colours of Andorra during spring and autumn seasons. After reaching the summit, mountaineers can take advantage of the splendid panorama of the surrounding landscape enriched by abundant flora and breathtaking views of the Pyrenees.
