In November holiday made our first trip and Motorhome, in one of the stops visited the Mont-rebei, located between the provinces of Lleida (Catalonia) e Huesca (Aragon). Considered one of the most impressive natural jewelry and least known of Catalonia, but his fame has grown and the number of visitors, so it's good to go before getting massiveness. Com post, we want to show this natural setting of charm in Spain, ideal for a weekend getaway.Turmundial not Gorge

What is the Congost de Mont-rebei?

O Congost de Mont-rebei is made up of canyons (gorges) and the river Noguera Ribagorçana passes among them that crosses from north to south. The Mont-Rebei of Congost is located between the regions of La Ribagorza (Aragon) and Pallars Jussà (Catalonia) and can be reached on foot from different points, car parks and trails , although the most popular is the access of La Masieta, where you have a business structure for tourists. Carved a path in the rock allows go all the gorge on the edge of the cliff and get views like the ones you see in the pictures. The Mont-rebei of Congost is protected and managed by the Fundació Catalunya – The stone, the same that takes care of Casa Milla by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona.

Routes and tracks the Congost de Mont-rebei

The road that runs through the Congost de Mont-rebei is part of the GR-1. There are at least three options to do this tour: the shortest and simplest option is to make the signposted route that goes from north to south of La Masieta car by the end of the gorge. The road is quite simple, about 3,5 km and you need about 1hr 45 to make the outward journey. You can extend the walk to the second suspension bridge, that crosses the gorge or Seguer (+ 1 km) e, once encouraged (or not) down the steep wooden stairs built in the wall leading to the lodge of Montfalcó.

The second option, for a little more advanced hikers, It is to make the road south to the north from the chapel of the parking “Mare Déu of Pertusa”, PERTO Corçà, until after the second suspension bridge in the gorge (near 8 km de ida). In our visits, we chose the second option, because as we were with a Motorhome, the location of the car park was good for this type of vehicle, the first was not possible to go with a MotorHome. A third option, in this case of Aragon, It is to make the Montfalcó hostel route to Congost.

To exit the canyon, it forces the monitor and you have time, we recommend you go to the suspension bridge Congost del Seguer. Although you add 1 km to the route and in this area it has slopes steeper, worth getting for two reasons: the first is the view from Congost from that point and the second is that you can go down (and return) for a few minutes. wooden steep stairs that run vertically rock and connect with the route of Montfalcó, in Huesca. To achieve them, it takes up about 6 m along a path quite steep, but those who did recommend the experience.

As for the way back, nothing to add, since this is the way to undo. Try to start too early or ride will be too late to find a place to eat in fact, It is quite advisable to bring some snacks and drinks in abundance, because even car areas “civilized” They are somewhat distant.
