The Llech is a watercourse located in the Pyrénées-Orientales, taking its source in the Canigou massif. The Llech Gorge is known to be one of the most important sites for canyoning!
The Llech, which is called "Llec" in Catalan, is a mountain stream. In France, and in the Pyrénées-Orientales, there are some sites particularly suitable for canyoning. The Llech and its gorges are one of them! The river is particularly rich in natural obstacles, allowing a sporting and recreational practice of canyoning. The Llech is one of the most popular spots for practitioners of this sport, due to its high flow rate. More than ten natural slides, four jumps and three abseiling runs await participants!
In the surrounding area, some other activities are available to holidaymakers, such as hiking in the mountains. But the most famous in the area is still canyoning on the Llech.
Located a few kilometres from the Prades, in the municipality of Estoher, the Llech is a treasure of the Pyrenees mountains. It is a natural canyon, located on the foothills of the Canigou massif. It is located near the National Park of the Catalan Pyrenees, and crosses many areas of wilderness. If it is possible to follow it with canyoning, you can also discover it during hikes. You will then cross very diversified natural sites, in the heart of the Pyrenees mountains. You can also admire and climb the Canigou mountain, a treasure of nature. Between sea and mountains, nature spreads and never ceases to evolve, offering unique and spectacular panoramas throughout the region.
The Llech once passed through two villages that are now ruining: Llech and Seners. These are historic villages, in ruins, which bear witness to the past history of the torrent. Not far from Estoher, the starting point for canyoning, there are also other sites of interest. One example is the Canigou. It is a sacred mountain for Catalans, and many people climb it every year. You can also visit some abbeys, such as Saint-Martin-du-Canigou or Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa. In Prades, there are also some interesting tourist sites, such as Saint-Pierre Church or Corneilla-de-Conflent Church. The small villages of the Pyrenees conceal ancient and historical monuments to discover between two sporting excursions!
