The only difficulty is to not get dizzy! the path is wide but has cliff side and we met people who have turned around because of that.
The walk is perfect for a medium difficult hike with a stunning views. We read one of the earlier reviews and took an advice to start the walk from the right side, over the bridge and up on the left s... more »
Attention !!! I agree with all the others that this hike is breathtaking, BUT please consider the following advise : when you need to decide in the beginning to cross the bridge on the right hand side or to just go straight, I strongly advise not to go straight. It is extremely dangerous, I could just do it half way and i doubt it can be done without professional equipment... So, just cross the bridge in the beginning of the gorge and you will have a nice trip with lots of adrenaline!
This was an excellent hike. Lots of criss crossing the river below on metal boardwalks, walking along paths that have literally been carved out of the vertical cliff face, as you steadily climb the valley, until you finally emerge on alpine pastures. This is where we stopped, but you can keep going to a refuge and then on again into Spain. I will definitely be going back here. An amazing place.
Haaa! Here's a nice well perilous ride in a majestic setting. It is announced that it is dangerous... and Yes! do not bring children without attaching them firmly and do not go in tap dance. Beautiful journey full of adrenaline, I recommend.
Spectacular! A highly recommended route! When you reach the small town of Thuès-between-Valls follow the indications of the Gorges and leading to the car park from the beginning of the same (about 4 / €5). It should be prepared with a good shoes and food and drink since the route can last hours varas (US realised a 5). It is a circular route in principle, but we decided to go back by the same path of ida. Gateways, bridges, cliffs, river there is... a beautiful landscape. We went with the two children of 9 i 11 years and not had any problem. I also have vertigo, but took it well, the worst were the bridges much balancing. I recommend to everyone that likes nature that go, at least try it, since it can always return by where it has been. I do not recommend to do it with dog since climbing to the bridges/gateways may be complidado.
