Located in the heart of the Mont Valier Massif, a national property managed by the National Forest Office, the Estagnous via ferrata links the Estagnous refuge to the Étang Long. This “pedestrian railway” will allow you to progress safely along the rocky walls thanks to various fittings (cable handrail, ladders or rungs fastened to the rock-wall, footrests). 620 m –out of a total 1200 m- of the course is fitted. The starting point is a 10-minute walk from the refuge at an altitude of 2245 m and goes all the way to the Étang Long. Walking up to the refuge takes about 4 hours. Enjoy the reserve’s preserved landscapes gazing at matchless scenery. The course is rolled out across steep slopes, sometimes rocky, sometimes flowery, revealing the characteristic nature of the Couserans. Hanging above the Étang Rond over 200 metre high, il will allow you to feel the thrills of verticality and discover a scenery of rare and wild beauty unaltered by the discretely fitted equipment. Using a high mountain guide is highly recommended.
