Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles), Zonza

Mountain Nature / Park
Jagged peaks, large rock walls, and pine trees twisted by the wind characterize Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles). Seven violet porphyry towers or needles make up the mountainous range, with the highest peak reaching 1,899 m (6,230 ft). The GR 20 (Grande Randonnée hiking trail) passes at the foot of the needles in the Asinao Valley, which is why many people refer to this area as the Towers Asinao. This is a hiking and rock climbing paradise with a multitude of jagged rocky peaks and vast forests with black pine. You can hike a relatively easy path by going to the right of the fountain and walking along the river to see the famous "hole in the bomb" at a height of 1,483 m (4,865 ft). A few miles from the road at the top of the rocky pass stands the soaring white statue of "Notre-Dame des Neiges" (Our Lady of the Snow).

    These Corsican mountains are true jewels. It's funny to see a ski in the summer in these mountains. This shows that if you really love Corsica should come in any season. And c is better: you n there will not be bothered by all these tourists who jostle and that communicate you their stress. We don't want to stress

    At the intersection of the mythical GR20, this site is really very interesting. The panorama of the Corsican mountains is exceptional. For the brave, the collar of Bavella, it is possible to borrow a hiking trail that takes you to the hole of the bomb, a natural curiosity. Attention the last meters that can be quite dangerous in wet weather: at least sneakers or hiking shoes are recommended.
