The via ferrata of Liaucous is located near Mostuéjouls at the entrance of the Gorges du Tarn and is a masterpiece of aesthetics!
The via ferrata of Liaucous is made out of several footbridges, monkey bridges, Nepalese bridges, and a zip line.
The "little difficult" route is not very aerial and is suitable for beginners.
You meet your guide either in the village of La Malène in the Gorges du Tarn or directly in the car park of the via ferrata of Liaucous, near the village of Rozier.
From here, a short approach walk of about 20 minutes will take you to the via ferrata. You put your equipment (harness, lanyards, pulley, and mountain-type helmet) and then your state-certified instructor proceeds with a safety briefing.
The via ferrata begins with a short and easy climb that leads you to a pretty plateau where the progression is comfortable and without any difficulty. You then progress on altitude terraces where you have a picnic break in the sun facing a breathtaking landscape. Then you continue with a little more technical plateau and arrive at the first monkey bridge of about 30 meters where you'll have to keep your balance and remain focused.
You then cross the passage of "la grotte" (the cave) which is a big narrow fault that leads to a small terrace. There, the route splits up. You can choose the little difficult (LD) route with a horizontal progression interspersed with monkey bridges, or the extremely difficult one (ED) in which the progression is much more athletic. The difficulty lies in the very tight passages. The atmosphere is very aerial and a good physical condition is necessary.
The route then converges. You'll cross a monkey bridge followed by a footbridge that leads to a new separation of the route. The easy part goes quietly until the end of the via ferrata, while the ED part opens in a kind of gorge. The itinerary goes successively from one wall to another with different monkey bars that result in the last length. It's the most difficult part of this last very athletic stretch.
Then the cable stops and you move on to a beautiful zip line which is the last obstacle of the route.
You walk back through a path that snakes between the rocks in a beautiful landscape. It leads to the car park where you can have a drink at the snack bar.
