A Real Spectacle in Ordesa
It is very hard to describe what the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park means. The most comfortable choice to enter Ordesa is through Torla, a beautiful town located next to Puerto de Cotefablo. In order to preserve the nature and incredible landscape, you can’t go by car to the base of Ordesa, which I think is a great idea. There are buses that take you there from Torla.
Once you are at the entrance of the park, the best thing is to take one of the paths; the most famous one is the one that takes you to the waterfall called Cola de Caballo. It’s probably one of the best known waterfalls in the Pyrenees and it’s called like this because the water looks like a horse’s tail as it falls. It is an incredible feeling to walk along the great cirque of Ordesa, through its green valleys, until you get to the waterfall. A bit higher you can access the Góriz shelter and from there see mountains as emblematic as the Monte Perdido and Cilindro de Marboré.
