Bordes de Nibrós

Stage # 26 Estaon >> Tavascan (2/3)


When we reached the beautiful Bordes de Nibós (Bordes = small mountain villages, a group of old farm buildings, now all of them are ghost towns...), the heat was already felt - we rested a little enjoying that incredible peace and latter to continue to climb to the Col de Lleret (1830m) where we had the traditional photo - every day the high point of the course is registered for later remember ...


We get a little to contemplate the fantastic scenery, circuses and the glacial valleys of the Pallars Subirà everywhere ...


The slippery descent that followed toasted us with fantastic views of the Vall de Cardos and its villages, small groups of very close to each houses nestled in the valley floors, the pizzarra roofs reflecting the sun, like in Lladorre, pictured below.
