Section 11: Bedous – Lac Gentau

In the morning, we went to catch a bus for Etsaut, and we met our favorite driver! Since we are girls, he got down and helped us with our backpacks. 🙂 We stopped at Etsaut, went for a coffee and chilled out for a while.
The Chemin de la mature was waiting for us. It was described as a quite hard part of the trail. Still, we had no major problems. The way is very narrow and stony. Well, after passing this, I guess we were supposed to be more mature? Didn’t work, though.

The way till the Col d’Ayous was amazing, and the views stunning!

That night we were camping next to a lake.

It’s a pity, this place is so crowded and touristic. And in the refuge, there are not much food supplies you can buy.


At Etsaut you will find a gite, some small restaurant and a bus going to Pau. Lac Gentau is a very popular spot. There are many people camping there. If you count on sleeping in a refuge, you’d better book a place.
