So we hiked to the hotel at the bottom of the gavarnie circus. What a pleasure to visit this beautiful place without the horde of tourists who usually go with it! It was just beautiful!

For those who were there qq year ago the gd change is due to the evil of the century... to the warming, the streams are dry, the waterfall gd is greatly diminished. Its still a beautiful place
Stunning, simple stunning!! A nice walk up to the hotel and then a bit of a scramble up to the waterfall which was magnificent. The walk to the waterfall is tricky but most reasonably fit people will make it to the hotel.
Great location. Good selection of cold drinks, snacks and ice creams. A bit pricey, but that is to be expected due to its location
