Forests, lakes and rugged mountain peaks, the Pyrenean valley Carança is well endowed with natural attractions, but the greatest of all is its isolation, defended below by the river gorges and over the mountain range.

From France, access to the river is forced through ledges carved into the rock, walkways and suspension bridges. Visitors easily follows this natural amusement park, which tests your mastery of fear of heights, while under his feet, the river passage between rock walls open.

Conveniently located four hours from the village, the haven Carança is small and easily filled when besiege hikers, but those who are left out are able to sleep indoors renting a store campaign.

Gorges de Carança

We left the car in the car park of the town of Valls Thues between the car park entrance is 2 ?.

After leaving the car we find a two posters in white panels hooked into a port where the first poster said, indicating to the right: " The Carança Chambre d'eau et par Corniche "and second poster, indicating left". The Roc de Madrid Carança per ou Corniche "(Photo 1)

We took the road to the left, which starts at a bridge in a rock excavated, and thus begins a well marked path that goes up on the mountain by a fairly dense forest.

trodden few feet, find another sign that tells "Les Passerreles" (photo 3) in white and very large letters painted on a concrete wall, and arrows point in both directions, both clockwise and counterclockwise.

From this side of the Gorges observed acrossthe other part of our les Gorges, the famous Corniche or balcony excavated in the rock.

It is interesting to make this journey in the direction of the needles of the clock, because you can see the balconies distance that are more spectacular, if possible, than when You travel itself.

As I said we follow the path of the far left, not going down the river, it goes up to about 1200m. high, then, about 45 minutes, losing decisively to Carança River.

finally get to the river, we find ourselves faced with a yellow sign that says, to our right: "Balcons de la Tet per Fontpedrouse" and left "Ras Refugi Carança Passerrelles pro les" (Photo 1).

To all Pasareles, we continue about 200 meters, and found a small bridge of metal that crosses the river, crossed it, and once on the right side of the river continue to ALONGand up through all the gateways, such as 4 suspension bridges, and many other gateways attached to the walls of the river.

Having traveled walkways, we can go back. If we follow the path forward is very evident and marked and take us, after about 3 hours Carança Refuge, perfect to access Carança Lakes, which are simply magical place.

We continue our tour, so we return back to the point where we had found the sign indicative Yellow "Balcons de la Tet per Fontpedrouse " and " Refugi Ras Carança per Passerrelles them "(Photo 1) . From this point to the ledge, we take the path of the arrow to " Balcons the Tet per Fontpedrouse ."

From here we will find more gateways, oldest, until finally we hit the balconies carved in stone. The travel with great caredistrutando do and the scenery, until we found another sign indicating: "Balcony of the Tet" - "self Parc per la Chambre d'eau" and "Fontpedreuse" (Photo 5) left " and " Gateways of Coriche ", which is where we come from. In front of this poster is another engaged, directly opposite, on a tree, but that is broken, not shown anything, it only sees a path down to our right. This indication or path that opens to the right is what makes the return by the river itself.

We followed the sign pointing to the " Parc Auto " (Photo 6) This road will take us, initially, very flat into the parking lot of the people, even if they actually departs of the. We kept walking and finally appears on our left a sign indicating " Parc Auto " and decidedly to the parking floor., Site of the start of our tour.

We have finally managed to make the circu Tourlar to them Carança Gorges, who, in addition to their beauty, characterized by a number of pu
