A real spectacle in ordesa

It is very hard to describe what the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park means. The most comfortable choice to enter Ordesa is through Torla, a beautiful town located next to Puerto de Cotefablo. In order to preserve the nature and incredible landscape, you can’t go by car to the base of Ordesa, which I think is a great idea. There are buses that take you there from Torla.

Once you are at the entrance of the park, the best thing is to take one of the paths; the most famous one is the one that takes you to the waterfall called Cola de Caballo. It’s probably one of the best known waterfalls in the Pyrenees and it’s called like this because the water looks like a horse’s tail as it falls. It is an incredible feeling to walk along the great cirque of Ordesa, through its green valleys, until you get to the waterfall. A bit higher you can access the Góriz shelter and from there see mountains as emblematic as the Monte Perdido and Cilindro de Marboré.

I recommend that you go to Ordesa at least once in your lifetime. It might be my favorite corner.

I went back at the end of March, when there is still a lot of snow in the area, but when it is starting to melt, it is a great spectacle. I could see a different aspect of one of the most wonderful corners of the Pyrenees. In the areas with sun, the snow had disappeared, but there was still plenty of snow in the shadowy areas.

It was the first time that I saw so much snow in Ordesa, from the parking lot to the Cola de Caballo waterfall. To see the Circo de Soaso covered by a white sheet of snow is an unforgettable image.

It is a bit tougher to go up to the waterfall when there is snow, but I still recommend that you visit the park when it’s snowy, but you have to be well prepared, since it is unstable with this weather.

Paradise in the pyrenees

I decided to go back since I had great memories of the place.

We decided to stay in a rural guesthouse in Escalona called Casa Patricio, in the valley of Puértolas. I was a good choice with a good price. This way we were able to go to the canyon of Añisclo, an less frequented area in the Oraras Park and that you do mainly by car.

I have never seen so much green together at the same time. Of course we also did the path of Cola de Caballo, from Torla, one of the prettiest paths and a great reward after 3 hours of walking. I really recommend it.
