Hi, I am doing in August slammed in the French side. I could use some help from someone who was there.
I start from and end Lescun after 7 days in Gavarnie. I wanted to ask a few questions:
-I realized that coming from Pau to Lescun, need to pre-order?
-Arrival at the end of the Trek from Paris-Gavarnie realized you can take a bus to Toulouse, where flight/train to Paris. There are other ways-best practices
There's a way to book cabins for accommodation during the Trek, lscon and Guarani-online, or over the phone?
-Food and water during the Trek we rely on every day to bring in, or need to take?
-More general tips are welcome

Thanks a lot!

About public transportation make it hard for me to say because I don't plan these things. Public transport I always improvise.

Gabrani is a small village, where you have to get to a large village or town. Don't think it's the only way to Toulouse. But it is the largest town closest to prinas. So I think there must be able to reach Paris. But I think the local tourist office can make you drive as fast and according to your needs when you come to the site.

Alpine huts in the lscon Inn for travelers but has hotels and hostels. There is also a very neat campground with showers and a restaurant-bar where I slept.
The same thing also in gabarani-but not where travelers can sleep, and there is camping. Can't vouch for how neat that I arrived at about 11:00 gabarani and went away at first light.

No need to purchase cabins if there is very limited. That is why you should bring when you come to the villages. I've anywhere on the GR 10. A f water. The cabins can eat dinner before bed and breakfast plus buy some bring sandwiches to last you until the next village.

The villages that you pass on your way, you go on the route of GR10:
1 Super big-LESCUN
2. ETSAUT BORCE and neighboring villages that separates the main road. There is a large store in BORCE-hostels in both and is common to sleep on the grass at the entrance to the village of ETSAUT is adjacent to a small stream.
3.-a small village once GABAS was successful but slowly started to empty of people, lots of abandoned buildings, but there are several restaurants and cafes. There is no camping in cabin run by the Alpine Club and 2 hotels. If I'm not mistaken there is a grocery store.
4-GOURETTE ski resort town she seems very detached from reality and in summer when ski and snow shagolshi leaving him. There is a cabin a few restaurants and a supermarket. BTW the rims shop gaort which is rare to find on the trail.
5.-Phillyrea latifolia and ARENS-village has several campsites and some hostels, supermarket, post office, a few restaurants and a hotel.
6.-CAUTERETS city has it all. Equipment shops, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels and a few camping sites.

From koterx the trail divided into two options.
1. the less beautiful and easier to walk to Luz-Saint-Sauveur, a medium town with all amenities.

2. possibility (that could extend through the day) to veer South institutions into high mountain area and go to gabarani through Vignemale.
If you select this option you hotel is the day (if you go really fast) or two cabins. The mountain has a cabin on Lake Lac De Gaube and cabin by the oniomel himself.


All information taken from the journal through writing when I did the GR10 in 2011. Changes over the years.

You didn't mention which track you plan (GR11/HRP) If you plan to sleep in cabins or intend to carry a tent.

I was there in 2007, so my information updated example.
However, camping at lscon I can only confirm what Arthur wrote. If I'm not mistaken there is also lscon Gite d ' etape this rural version of mountain huts.

About camping in Gavarnie, spent a few nights, he equipped it with a little less lscon, but also close to the village and there is no need.

If you go on the HRP, only towns and move them they way the neighbouring ski Candanchu and Astun (1 hour walk), which arrives at the end of the second day and as of 2007, this summer is a kind of "concrete" ghost monsters, you won't find a lot of people and very few grocery stores.
What you can do is to take a bus to the village of Canfranc kandnch found in the Valley, where there are some more people and supplies – all three, incidentally, are on.

About-only for move in, which is problematic – usually (not always possible to buy cooking supplies and there usually are reluctant to sell because they need bread), but they will sell you food, they instead (recommended, especially if you sleep in the cabin) and sandwiches, bags of "picnic" (I think-much less recommended and usually mostly a waste of money).
My recommendation to dinner in (even if you are sleeping in a tent you can eat in a French Park, basically, you need to sleep near the huts) and carrying dry food (bread, ham, cheese, some veggies) for breakfast/lunch.

You can read more tips and recommendations on post I wrote on my hike at HRP

Thanks for the info.
I go for the HRP.
I'm still deciding whether to carry a tent or sleep in cabins each night. If I'm going to sleep in, I realized that August is packed with visitors, so it is best to book your accommodation in advance-how do I do this?

I traveled to the Spanish side, but emerged to gooarani. The only thing I can tell you that in itself does not have a cabin, but there's no shortage of places to stay, we invite you phone number we found through tourism site of Guarani (there is no information about accommodation beyond telephone numbers).

When we invite in retrospect this was the town was empty of tourists and plenty of places to stay.
We were, I don't know how this August.

I traveled in July, and if you travel alone, in principle, should not have any problem, to be sure, one can always ask employees to book cabins have room for the next night.

If it's still relevant.

The huts along the HRP indeed crowded but if you only ask for invite you up always the last cabin shouldn't be a problem (basically, once I got the last space on Bayssellance).

About food-just like me writing. Meals possible (and recommended) to eat in huts but about food during the day is preferable to obtain or build on their picnic bags.

About gbarni-port course subject to discretion, disqualify out hitch family. Once you reach one of the most populated towns will be easy for you to connect to public transport in France and from there to get to Paris. The challenge is always the end of the runway.
