Enjoy two days of hill walking at the spectacular Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park located at the heart of the Pyrenees.
Our goal is to climb Monte Perdido in two days from Ordesa Valley spending the night bivouacking near the summit, a great location to contemplate one of the best sunrises in the Pyrenees.
The Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park is located in the Huesca Pyrenees, Aragon (Spain). It occupies the municipalities of Bielsa, Fanlo, Puértolas, Tella-Sin, Torla and Broto and it receives over 600.000 visitors per year.
The Park cover 15.608 hectares and it has a peripheral protection zone of 19.679 hectares. The altitude ranges from 700 m. in Vellós River to 3.355 m. in the Monte Perdido summit.
Without doubt this Park is a jewel of nature, with a geomorphology created by the erosive glacial action, where you can find huge vertical walls, beech woods, waterfalls and a varied fauna.
Brecha de Rolando is a narrow col of 40 m wide and 100 m high, located at 2.804 meters high in the Monte Perdido massif. Legend has it that this gap was created by Rolando, Charlemagne’s nephew, while he was trying to destroy his sword hitting it against the rock after the battle of Roncesvalles.
Monte Perdido is the highest limestone massif in Europe with a summit of 3.355 meters high.
