Overview

 
Ori
 

This solitary peak constitutes the first 2000 meters of the Pyrenees from the western side. His strategic situation turns him into an extraordinary viewing-point including Pau's French plains, the green of Selva de Irati, the mountain chain of Pyrenees and even up to the Moncayo in the south.

In the spanish side (province of Navarra) the rivers Irati and Salazar are born. The great forest in this valley is called the "Selva del Irati" (but really it is not any jungle but a very agreeable place like a green sea).

Others names: Pico de Ori, Orhi, Orhy, Ory.
