Description

Monte Perdido is the highest limestone massif in Europe. It is located within the southern slope of the central Pyrenees, north of the province of Huesca, in the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park, in the Spanish autonomous community of Aragon. Since 1997, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The massif’s highest peak, also named Monte Perdido, stands at 3,355 meters and is our trip’s aim. Its high elevation and the stunning views of the green Ordesa Valley and surrounding rugged mountains make Monte Perdido ascent the top mountaineering destination within the National Park.

There are numerous trails to Monte Perdido’s summit. We will ascend via the famous Escaleras route, traveling for over 20 kilometers with a cumulative elevation gain of 1,516 meters. While this is not a difficult ascent, it displays several challenges along the way.

Our trip will begin with a 1-day ascent to the Goriz mountain refuge (2,160m), on Monte Perdido massif’s southern slope, where we will spend the night. We will reach the refuge via the Faja de las Flores, a 2,400m-high narrow ridge trail that crosses the Ordesa Valley. On day two, we will climb to Monte Perdido’s summit via the Escaleras route, and then descend back to Goriz and to the valley. 

Monte Perdido is a must for mountaineering fans. Don’t miss this fascinating journey! Book your trip now!
