Grotte de l'Aguzou - Escouloubre

The Aguzou cave is remarkable for its beauty and its mineral profusion. Unusual visits are proposed in the form of subterranean walks.
The Aguzou cave has not been specially fitted out for public visits, as it is far too fragile. Visits are therefore organised in small groups and last for a whole day. The cave is thus protected and everyone can admire the profusion, variety and beauty of the classic and also the more subtle speleothems. A few difficult passages are equipped with fixed ladders, ropes etc..., designed more for security reasons than for comfort.

Departure is fixed for 9 a.m. at the starting point as indicated on the side D.118 road (except in July and August, when the departure is from Usson). There, we will kit you out with a boiler suit, helmet, electric light and a belt. There is one guide for a group of 8 -12 people, each carrying their own picnic lunch..
  The first part of the visit, until midday, takes in classical features: vast chambers, huge stalagmites, sometimes 20 metres high, curtains of stalactites hanging overhead. The lunch is by candlelight, using chairs and tables in a heated enclosure (the temperature can rise to 13 °C, though it is 8,5 °C in the rest of the cave). We offer you coffee or tea. In the afternoon, no more obstacles, just pleasure for the eyes, the senses and the camera. A stroll along a path between two ribbons, around a succession of gardens, each 3 to 4 metres long, containing geometric crystals with plane facets, where the angles at the summit are identical for all similar crystals of the same rimstone pools (gours). Ornate flowers underfoot, aragonite on the ceiling, long white fibres in the form of sea urchins, powder-puffs and fans and, on the walls, all the forms that you have already seen: stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, eccentrics. There are also numerous prismatic candles and hollow triangles of calcite, which are extremely rare. You will see the "Flower Gallery", the "Chamber of the 1001 Nights", the "Chamber of the Queen's Crown" and many others. Return is scheduled for 5 p.m: after 7 hours underground you will leave with impression that is was only three. We will almost have to push you out!

Bureau des guides et accompagnateurs des Pyrénées Audoises

Bureau des guides et accompagnateurs des Pyrénées audoises - Quillan

What is a mountain guide (AEM)? In the mountain world they are called "smugglers". Intermediates between the curious city dweller and the wild mountains. He acts as a bridge between two worlds, a role that consists of explaining the mountain environment to his customers. For an AEM, the journey to a summit is just as important as the climb. An AEM is mainly a state certificate (1st degree mountaineering), validated in 3 years, the only one that gives access to paid mountain surveillance. A long and rigorous training in the field, in particular supervised by the Peloton de Gendarmerie de Haute Montagne and other specialists in orientation, geology, fauna, flora, etc ... have trained the candidate to be very versatile. Thanks to its in-depth knowledge of the terrain, the AEM will relieve you not only of choosing the best route based on multiple parameters (weather, altitude, curiosities), but also of finding the right path at the right intersection without having to having to fight with maps and GPS. Many have already seen marmots, few can explain their social and biological organization, it is the same with medieval mountain castles, as well as with the beautiful orchid that we meet in the meadow. In short, leaving with an AEM is the guarantee to share emotions, passions and knowledge. See you soon...
