Bibendum
At the end of the village of Gavarnie, take the dirt track and follow the left bank of the gave (mountain torrent). Suddenly the superb Cirque de Gavarnie comes into view: three layers of snow-covered strata, peaks gleaming curiously white against ochre cliff faces, and countless silver waterfalls. The biggest one, the Grande Cascade, is fed by melt-water overflowing from the frozen lake on Monte Perdido (2,592m) on the Spanish side. The cascade falls a clear 422m into the void.
