Make your way towards the ski resort of Hautacam. When you arrive in the resort, leave your car at the Tramassel Pass.


Short and easy walk which should take about two hours there and back. Set out from the Tramassel Pass where you can leave your car next to the restaurant and make your way to the "La Moulata" chairlift, on the furthest right of the resort. From there, you will find a small path that leads to Nerbiou Peak along the ridge. On each side, there is a valley, on the left, the Isaby valley with the Midi de Bigorre Peak, the Brèche de Roland and Gavarnie, and, on the right, the Argelès-Gazost valley. In the winter, snow shoes or touring skis are a must. In the summer, you will need good walking boots. Return to where you started along the same path.
