It was tough walking, the weather was hot , theÂ sceneryÂ fantastic and I loved every step I took 🙂
Remember to take insectÂ repellent or bite cream as I had a few nasty bites.
Make sure your kit is light and quick drying as its a hot dry dusty place and you will want to wash your clothes out at night.
If you are a light sleeper take ear plugs if staying in dormitoryÂ type refuges.
In peak season July/August book refuges in advance ( we had a few lucky nights where we just managed to get the last beds available )
If staying at Cortalets think about staying an extra night to enjoy a walk to the summit of Carnigou.
Keep your pack as light as possible, mine was around 10kg with water and lunch.
Most of all ENJOY !
