Hoja  Estels del Sud...

Estels Sud is a journey of five days in the mountains of Els Ports. Ports is a prehistoric rocks limestone border between Tarragona (counties of Montsi?, Baix Ebre and Terra Alta), Teruel (county of Matarranya) and Castelló (Baix Maestrat).

The path gives character to move to different cruise itineraries that currently are used by hikers in isolation and linear. Thus Ports massif knowing this place as a whole, with all its scenic, natural and cultural variety, which is very rich and varied is scrolled.

The trip consists of five stages, may begin or end at any of the five properties that work as start-final stage. It can also be done in both directions of travel either.

The stages are quite long, about 20 km per stage and with slopes of 1.000 m. per stage. So overall it is a journeypretty hard for duration of the conference.

On the other hand, the marking of the stages is far from satisfactory. We must be very careful not to lose the right way. Even at some points, it is seen as the marks have been specifically manipulate to mislead the mountaineer. Hopefully it is corrected as soon as possible.

We made the journey in four stages, cutting directly from the shelter of Caro, which was our starting point, to the village of Arnes:

  1. Refuge Caro - Arnes
  3. Harness - Beseit
  5. Beseit - Refugio Ferrera Font
  7. Font Ferrera Refugio - Refugio Caro

The other alternative is for the G & uacute; bias of Parrisal is & ntilde; Alizada with & quot; l'estel & quot ;, we describe AHEAD & oacute; n and where we must be wary of the Paso del Romeret


In the first half of this stage will go up the valley of r & iacute; o Matarranya, as & iacute; we will leave following Beseit entire track to drive us & aacute; until Parrissal.

We'll walk surrounded by lofty walls, slender needles. When we get & nbsp; the G & uacute; bias, we have two options, function & oacute; n water flow and desireof soaking to have.

The m & aacute; s simple, if flow allows, is followed by the & nbsp; r & iacute; o and across the strait. This passage is stunning, the walls rise m & aacute; s one hundred feet on either side haci & eacute; ndonos feel so small & ntilde; os in this kind of cathedral


The other option & oacute; n is the Pas Romeret. Before coming to close out a path to the left. We climbed a few hundred meters altitude, it will make us & aacute; n sweat and we especially har & aacute; n enjoy & nbsp; spectacular views. Habr & aacute; you pay attention & oacute; na descent as there very exposed sections, where we will have to take & nbsp; hard up the steps & ntilde; os and chains are installed to facilitate passages m & aacute; s exposed


This trail is not recommended for people with v & eacute;. Vertigo or without experience in such passages

Once you reach the other side of the strait, continue R & iacute; oabove, shortly after & eacute; s of the Pont de la Guimerana & nbsp; (No I searched & eacute; ning is STILL bridge, is a gorge) off to the right path that will make us the & aacute; climb the canyon Coscollosa, we go past several yews, one monumental.
