We were a little more circumspect, walking up to the Pont d''Espagne to admire the wondrous Lutour and Ceriset waterfalls before taking a chair-lift and a gentle hike up into the mountain range itself towards the Lac du Gaube, a truly idyllic haven in the shadow of the Vignemale, the highest mountain in the French Pyrenees, with a glacier backdrop even in summer.
It is overlooked from the south by the Pyrenean peaks of Aneto, Montaigu, and Vignemale and is surrrounded by three summits reaching up to 1,000 metres.
