    Daniel Rocha reviewed La Fouly from Arnuva via Col Ferret

    12 days ago

    Don't underestimate this bit of the TMB: it's a long climb to the pass, and an even longer descent to La Fouly, which seems like you'll never reach. GREAT scenery throughout, particularly at Col Ferret on a clear day: you can see all the way to the France border! Subtracting one star because a lot of this trail is a descent and walk to the town, which are a bit boring.

    One of the most beautiful pieces of the TMB, this hike takes a few extra miles to get to Rifugio Bonatti, but the views are well worth it! It's a lot of elevation earlier on, but the scenery in the main ridge path (up to Col de Tete) is AMAZING - some of the best views I've ever had in my life.

    This is a common part of the TMB, and if done as part of a counterclockwise TMB (the most popular variant), this is a grueling hike, with multiple hours of basically non stop going up. Each mountain pass is a big victory, but by the end we were EXHAUSTED. Did this July 1st and there was still a lot of snow to trek across, so bring hiking poles for stability.

    Astonishing views of the mountains, very accessible terrain.
