The route that crosses through the Mont-rebei Gorge itself will take you to ridges playing host to typical Pyrenean rupicolous bird life: red-billed chough, wallcreeper and rupicolous birds of prey.
The Mont-rebei Gorge, in the Montsec mountain range, is an immense canyon of incredibly high vertical walls that form a narrow passage through which the Noguera Ribagorçana flows, finishing up in the south where it enters an amphitheatre of striking cliffs.
There are no roads, railroads or electrical lines that cross the Mont-rebei Gorge; you can only pass through this incredible place via the small, partially excavated track within the rocks...as long as you leave your vertigo behind!
La Fundació Territori i Paisatge, created by the Caixa Catalunya charitable organisation, owns the Mont-rebei Gorge Reserve- consisting of nearly 1,500 acres of territory- and ensures its environmental protection.
As well as the rupicolous species and European vultures, the presence of bearded vultures, griffon vulture and Egyptian vulture is all but guaranteed. In recent years sightings of the cinereous vulture have become increasingly frequent. The route will also give you access to other southern European species, such as blue rock thrush, great grey shrike, subalpine warbler, western Orphean warbler, dartford warbler and western Bonelli's warbler, amongst others.
