Gran Encantat is a mountain peak of Catalonia, Spain. Located in the Pyrenees, it is the higher of the two peaks of the Els Encantats mountain, with an altitude of 2,748 metres above sea level. It is the tallest point on the Els Encantas twin peaks, the shorter being Petit Encantat, which at 2,733 metres is only 12 metres shorter than Gran Encantat. Gran Encantat towers over the picturesque reservoir of Estany de Sant Maurici, and to the east Pica d'Estats can be seen. Gran Encantat is also an incredible climbing destination, with many people climbing, hiking and scrambling in the summer. The mountain is ideal for these activities as it is around 5 kilometres from the small town of Espot. The route from Espot is easily walkable alongside the Riu Escrita river which runs through a classic Pyrenean valley.
