Rivers basins of Formiga and Guatizalema

The ponds of Formiga and Guatizamela (as that of Flumen) offer the most interesting canyoning routes of the western part of the Sierra of Guara. The river Formiga is born in the slopes of the Tozal de Guara and passes by by forming some canyons as Formiga and Gorgonchon, before its confluence with the river Calcón. The river Guatizalema (from the Arab Guadix alam, the quiet river), is a river born in the north hillside of the western foothills of the Sierra of Aineto, province of Huesca, in 1.370 meters in height, in the valley of Nocito, and which passes by to go to throw itself into the river Alcanadre.

The Gorgonchon

Short and very narrow canyon. A long corridor immerges us into a fascinating darkness, and offers oppositions and abseilings. In spite of its length of more or less 200m, it is very technical and requires a good physical shape. For the experts, it is a jewel among the classic canyons of Sierra of Guara both by its morphology and its singular delights.

San Martin de la Val de Onsera

A dry and questioning route; quite different from the other canyons of the zone. This descent which scrolls between big walls offers good abseilings, spectacular views and a pleasant excursion up to a monastery lost in the edge of wall. Opened to a public without preliminary technical knowledge, it offers a very interesting alternative.[/image_hover]
