The Cúber reservoir - At the foot of Puig Major

 

This slightly shorter and easier walk leads around the Cuber reservoir , which is one of Mallorcas two water reserves.

Mallorca's highest mountain peak, Puig Major, is always visible along the walk. Together with the other peaks in the area it provides a magnificent frame to the lake.

 

The reservoir is usually full in June with trees and yellow flowering shrubs on the water's edge and cows, sheep, goats and donkeys grazing.

 

The landscape has a beauty resembling Provence. The color scale is grayish green. Along the trail blossoms rosemary, salvia and heather.

 

Parking is available at mileage 34 on Ma-10 towards Lluc.
