Circular Posets Peak - Pyrenees
In the Benasque valley , in the Aragonese Pyrenees, is the second highest peak in the Pyrenees: Pico Posets , 3,375 meters high . Staying in the different refuges that surround this mountain, we will rotate 360 degrees around this magnificent mountain, also trying to climb to its summit, overcoming a significant gap, although with little technical difficulty. The views over the numerous peaks that exceed 3,000 meters will more than deserve the effort made. A high altitude trek, in a magnificent setting.
