Approach to Barèges:

-Barèges is a small village in the west side of the famous Col du Tourmalet, between Luz-St-Saveur and Bagnères de Bigorre. The shorter access is from the highway to Tarbes. You take exit 12 to Lourdes, Argeles-Gazost, Pierrefitte, Luz-St-Saveur and barèges. Two km after Barèges is the road to Plateau de Lienz where the road ends and it begins the forest track of 4 km to the end in a small parking. The track follows but it's forbbiden to drive.

Meter to gain: 600m.
Time: 1h 30 min.
Type: walk-up.

The easy way to refuge is the forest track but it's longer. If you want a nice route you can use the paths between the curves of the track signalled with cairns of stones.
