Cirque de Gavarnie: A hiker's paradise
The cirque de Gavarnie is a large limestone cirque of glacial origin , located at an altitude of 3000 meters, with at its heart one of the highest waterfalls in Europe (427 meters).
Where it is?
Dug in the heart of the Pyrenees, it is located in the southwest of France, in the Hautes-Pyrenees, Occitan region, on the northern slope of the line's peak, marking the border with Spain.
Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is a true paradise for hikers , where everyone can enjoy the power of nature, either by a simple walk or by practicing high mountains. The goal is always the same: to take full view.
The circus owes its success to the various explorations it has sparked such as:
- The scientists
- The painters
- Mountain dwellers in search of exploration
They made it from the 16th century the cradle of what is called Pyreneanism. The circus has definitely inscribed its name in legend when Victor Hugo called it 'an impossible and extraordinary object' and 'the colosseum of nature'.
