The valley features stunning glacial scenery and is completely remote, set in a truly idyllic spot. Discover bordes (huts), queserías (dairies) and the remains of valley forges - clear examples of the resources in the High Pyrenean region - at the starting point and from about 8 km. Experience 600 metres of altitude difference, characterised by a gentle incline.
