Crossing the Pyrenees, 5th day: Bagniere-de-Luchon – Seix
The rest day yesterday was necessary, today there were 4 passes 😜: Col de Portillon – Col de Menté – Col de Portet d’Aspet – Col de la Core. The route was correspondingly strenuous, 110km and about 3000m. Especially the Col de la Core I found very nice, the view from the pass height was magnificent, hard to believe that the pass is “only” about 1400m. The summer has now arrived, we had sunshine all day long. It was still not too hot, often a fresh wind went from the mountains.
Start in Bagnéres-de-Luchon:
Shortly behind the village we started, the climb to the Col de Portillon began;

And finally at the Col de la Core. Look at the beautiful view…!
