The Tebay Lad and Geordie Lass backpack in the Parc National D' Aiguestortes I Estany De Saint Maurici, Part3
The next morning we headed down the Vall de Dellui heading for the Refuge d' Estany Long. A party met us heading up as we negotiated the boulder field. There were posts to guide you through.
The view down the valley with the Estanyets de Dellui.
We had hoped to spend a night at the Refuge d' Estany Long. But of course it was full. This is a very popular bit of the Parc with people coming up from the taxis to the lake. So we headed down to the taxis which whisk you to Boi for 5€. We had a night in a hotel after sampling the tapas.
A taxi was taken to the dam wall of the Embassament de Cavallers from where we headed up towards the Refugi Joan Ventosa i Calvell. This was a hot day and the sun reflected off the granite slabs as we made our way up the trough end.
One reason the huts are popular is that there is a circuit that they run around carrying very small packs.
Anyway, time to soak up the views and rest in the heat of the day.
Beard's coming on lad.
