Pech de Bugarach, Bugarach

#32 of 89 in Outdoors in Aude
The Pic de Bugarach or Pech de Bugarach (puèg de Bugarag in Occitan, i.e. "Peak of Bugarag") is the highest summit (1230 m) in the Corbières mountains in the French Midi.

The western part of the mountain is located on the territory of the commune of Bugarach. Its eastern part is on the territory of Camps-sur-l'Agly.

The geology of the Pic de Bugarach is striking. Its top layer is an overthrust from the Iberian plate and is older than the bottom ones. This has given rise to its description as an "upside-down mountain".
It is possible to climb up the Bugarach: a classical route called "Voie de la fenêtre" because of a big hole in a cliff, climbs the South face. One may go down via the easiest route, North, and join the "Col de Linas". Climbing still requires a good physical condition, and the mountain has claimed the life of at least one unprepared tourist.
