What an amazing area! I wish to go there. Unfortunately haven't been yet to Pyrenees. In your opinion what would be the most beautiful area for first visit? Or this is impossible question :-)

Well it's a tough question... but if I'd have to recommend something I'd definitely say the Gavarnie / Ordesa area. It won't dissapoint you, that's for sure! I have rarely seen such amazing rock formations and landscapes...

I am according to rbi, Ordesa and Gavarnie are the better places to be initiated in the Pyrenees.

Certainly, nice photo by rbi.

Also, go a little bit early in the season, as the snow melts almost completely during the summer. With snow it's much much more beautiful! This picture is taken around half july.

Thanks for the info. I agree, remains of snow is great decoration to scenery.
