View of a valley of the Pyrenees from the parking Artigusse
At the start of the hike which will lead you to Lake Oule, you will discover beautiful landscapes and particularly enclosed valleys, as below. Large coniferous forests give a beautiful color to the landscape.
Lake of the Pyrenees
The lake of l'Oule located at 1819 meters is a superb dam of the Pyrenees. Before the construction of the dam, there were green pastures. From the lake you will see the peak of Bastan which culminates in 2715 meters.
Easy walk in the Pyrenees
To make an easy hike and family, you can go to Lake Oule, not far from Saint Lary. At the beginning, you will have a beautiful view of the mountain (photo below). The difference in altitude is 200 meters and the whole of the walk will take you 2 hours approximately. Very pleasant. The view of the lake is superb.
Lake of the mountains in the Pyrenees
The Pyrenees range has many natural lakes, from glaciers, but also artificial lakes. Lac de l'Oule is one of them. The result is very successful. (© Photos by E. Buchot)
