Itinerary

After crossing the bridge, the route proceeds on the Carrer Sant Jaume, on the right mountain side. The Calle de la Centrau is to be walked between the steep wood on the mountain’s side and the flat and cultivated valley bottom. After the Pònt de Hèr the walk follows a path on the same side and along the Garonne. At the Pònt deth Pas deth Lop, you follow the left mountain side across the disused bridge of the national road. You walk a short stretch of the N-230 and then turn right on the road going across a rural area and the houses of Era Bordeta. Past the small village the itinerary goes on through the fields, following the GR 211.1 path that leaves the course of the Garonne, crosses a bridge of one of its affluent rivers (the Joeu), and then goes down to the village of Es Bòrdes. You proceeds along the river on the Camin Reiau, still close to the course of the river, passing behind some campsites. After reaching the bridge of Aubèrt, you keep on the same mountain side, walking slightly up to the wood where the valley narrows. At the next Pònt de Beussa, the 2008 walk through Occitan valleys went to the right mountain side, on the route N-230, until Vielha. Nevertheless it is possible to keep to the left side of the mountain, first on a forest path and then among the fields until the village of Gausac. The Carretera de Gausac leads to the old town centre.
