High Route of Perdidos Massif - Pyrenees
The circular route of The High Route of Los Perdidos is a circular route that runs through two of the great massifs of the Pyrenees, as Monte Perdido and Vignemale, uniting several refuges, both in the Aragonese Pyrenees and the French Pyrenees (we will only stay in five of them), since we will complete the route in five days.
This circular route is extremely beautiful, being able to enjoy the great Pyrenean valleys, its most important cirques, its highest waterfalls and its beautiful peaks, surrounding the third highest in the Pyrenees, Monte Perdido.
For five days we will enjoy this classic route of the Pyrenees, an obligatory activity for all mountaineers, digging holes in some of its peaks if time and our legs allow it.
