On the way back to Rebilla village

Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park is an IUCN Category II National Park situated in the Pyrenees of Huesca province, Aragon, Spain. There has been a National Park in the Ordesa Valley since 1918. Its protected area was enlarged in 1982 to cover the whole region amounting to 156.08 km².


It has been included since 1997 by UNESCO in the Biosphere Reserve of Ordesa-Viñamala. In the same year it was included in the cross-border Pyrénées - Mont Perdu World Heritage Site.


The park's territory includes the municipalities of Torla, Broto, Fanlo, Tella-Sin, Puértolas, and Bielsa.






Beginning of autumn in the Pyrenees means no crowds, empty paths, stunning autumn colors and first snow in higher elevations - all those things one needs when searching for a complete rest and brain restart.


We spent our 3rd and final part of Ordesa national park exploration in the location called Gargantas de Escuaín hiking from the mountain village of Rebilla to the Circo de Gurrundué viewpoint - once more a lovely autumn hike with fine weather and more rural taste of the Pyrénées...
