In the foreground, the Arou lake is surrounded by herds, and the Payolle lake marks the beginning of the Campan valley.
More to the west, the Pic du Midi de Bigorre and its observatory stand out from the massif.
Continuing my tour, I contemplate the Grand Vignemale and its glacier in the distance. Then, the majestic Pic de Néouvielle, Pic Long, Pic de Campbieilh hide the famous Brèche de Roland, but the Monte Perdido massif, further away, imposes its limestone mass, set on its white glaciers. My gaze then stops on the walls of Barroude, from which emerge the Pic de Troumousse and the Pic de la Munia. The refuge is hidden but I can see the end of the lake.
And then, on the east side, the clouds that have preceded me do not allow me to observe the massif clearly, revealing only a few undulating shadows. The Aure Valley is also hidden, and only Arreau is visible below. Despite this small drawback, the show is grandiose and I settle down for lunch, eyes wide open!
