Hoja  Gorges de Carança...


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 refuge Carança is small and easily filled when besiege hikers, but those who are left out are able to sleep indoors renting a tent.

Gorges de Carança

At the entrance to Valls Thuès between a sign leads to the parking area specifically prepared for visitors to the Gorges of Carança, giving us a hint of what busy and popular this route, a mix of hiking and adventure . Adventure because the route, although not present many difficulties, is it a way to use it is ovens that wall sections and sections with bridges and walkways over the river Carança giving it a special character.

We recommend to start the route by Les Cornises; The trail begins by crossing a wooden bridge in the parking lot and leaving the entrance to the Gorges on the left. We climb quickly with Thuès and Tet river in sight to go straight down the path to the wall won, perhaps the most spectacular. A security cable crosses this stretch at high altitude, where if we can make sure.

After enjoying this first section the second pairyou are the funniest, runs close to the river and the road is intertwined with steps fitted, bridges and walkways that appear out of nowhere in the trees and allow us to move safely. A total of four suspended walkways and as many steps embedded in the wall, will allow us to advance by les Gorges post full of corners and where the temptation of a swim in the crystal clear waters is almost inevitable.

After completing the walkways and suspension bridges still climbing a very marked way to Ras Carançà Refuge. A small shelter with few amenities but in a special place where we can make a stop before starting the way back.

The way back along the same path that we have come to this spectacular Pareje, but at the end we returned by way of the Madriu- Roc, a little bumpy but no exposure to height Cornises them.

encontrar the path must be vigilant 100 meters before catching the last gateway (the first leg), as a sign indicates the right, and climb the road to the parking lot.

This route runs parallel off the back and allows us to have respect for other persepectiva, brand new, les Gorges.
