Due to the height of the local mountains, the sun sets very early and hence the valley’s name: the Dark Valley.
In the north of El Pallars Jussà, the River Flamicell runs through the valley and to the foot of the mountains. That is where the Sallente–Estany Gento cable car awaits visitors in the summer months. Enjoy the views as you enter an area that is only accessible on foot. This is the starting point of many routes to the Aigüestortes and Estany de Sant Maurici National Park.
