Trip Report The Gorges of Kakuetta

Jump to last reply

I'm pretty well known for posting reports about unknown parts of Paris, but I thought that for once I would post a report about an unknown part of France.

The gorges of Kakuetta (it's a Basque name) are in the Pyrénées 80 km from Pau, which is the closest big city. It is a truly extraordinary site because it gives you the total experience of a tropical rain forest without being anywhere near the tropics. You need to have hiking shoes or at least sneakers/tennis shoes/trainers because there are parts of the terrain that can be quite uneven and slippery. The ticket office even sells walking sticks, and they are probably a good investment even though I didn't buy one.

Anyway, this place is still more or less "confidential" so if you really want to see something that just about nobody else ever gets to see, I highly recommend the trip.

Here is the photo report that I made: http://tinyurl.com/kakuetta
