About Taga Sumit Pyrenees mountain hiking from Ribes De Freser

This is a circular 17km MEDIUM or MEdIUM-HARD mountain walk in the lower Pyrenees mountains starting and ending at Ribes de Freser.

Allow 7-9 hours to complete the route depending on physical fitness.

From RENFE Ribes de Freser walk towards the centre of the town parrallel to the river. We turn off at the end of the tree lined boulevard and start heading up entering the forest and begining an uphill ascent.

The uphil climb for this walk takes us through cattle grazing hills and is a continuous hard uphill walk to reach the summit. Once at the summit we have spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the Spanish Pyrenees mountains.

This route should only be atempted by people with a MEDIUM level of phsical fitness and time management is needed to ensure arrival at the station before the last train back to Barcelona. I completed the route in 6 hours as an experienced mountain hiker.

Accessibility, mobility & Clothing for Taga Sumit from Ribes de Freser

I pack for wind and rain when doing this hike because it is in the high Pyrenees mountains.

I recommend 2-3 litres of water because there is nowhere to top up water bottles along the route.

If doing this as a winter hike, I recommend crampons for added traction on any snow or ice.
