A walk around the three ponds to take in the sights
Mountain vacations are all the rage.
Today’s summer holidaymakers are increasingly turning to “green” holidays.
Since Covid, the occupancy rate for nature tourism accommodation has risen considerably.
Going to the mountains opens up many possibilities. You’ll be able to enjoy walks, white-water activities and hiking.
The mountains offer a wide range of activities.
In fact, for this experience, we’re proposing a rather famous mountain activity: hiking.
Before you leave, you’ll probably ask yourself the eternal question: have we forgotten anything?
To make the most of your day, make sure you’re well equipped! Follow our reminder :
- Bring good shoes
- A walking stick if you have
- A picnic of your favorite foods
- Wear sunscreen
- Water, without moderation
- And above all, wear clothes you’re comfortable in.
Head for the hike to the three Rabassoles ponds!
Distance: 8 km
Total ascent: 415 D+.
The advantage of this hike is that it’s accessible to adults and children alike. You’ll be captivated by the landscapes you’ll discover along the way. You’ll see, when you reach the top, the reward will be so beautiful that you’ll forget the miles you’ve just covered.
The hike starts in Ax les Thermes. A small parking lot at the foot of the mountains allows you to leave your car for the duration of your trip.
That’s it, you’re there, it’s time to start your hike.
Step by step, you can observe and understand the environment around you.
Hiking is a free activity with many benefits, so don’t hesitate any longer.
It will help you reduce your negative thoughts, thus improving your mental health.
You’ll build muscle and improve your body’s oxygenation.
After all these benefits, are you still hesitating?
3 km on foot wears out, wears out… but it doesn’t just wear out, it also wears out!
There’s a reason why we’ve included picnic in our list! Once you’ve reached the top, with a breathtaking view of a lake in the background, you can settle in.
A short break will do you a world of good.
Sit back and take time to contemplate and admire the view that nature has to offer.
Take a deep breath and consider how lucky you are to be here, almost alone in the world.
Once you’ve reached the Etang Noir, you can turn around and head back after a short break.
Back at the parking lot, you’ll be proud of yourself – and you should be!
