Create an itinerary including Pech de Bugarach
The Pic de Bugarach ([pik də byɡaʁaʃ]) or Pech de Bugarach ([pɛʃ-]) (puèg de Bugarag in Occitan, i.e. "Peak of Bugarag") is the highest summit (1230 m) in the Corbières Massif in the French Midi.

The western part of the mountain is located on the territory of the commune of Bugarach. Its eastern part is on the territory of Camps-sur-l'Agly.

The geology of the Pic de Bugarach is striking. Its top layer is an overthrust from the Iberian plate and is older than the bottom ones. This has given rise to its description as an "upside-down mountain".
It is possible to climb up the Bugarach: a classical route called "Voie de la fenêtre" because of a big hole in a cliff, climbs the South face. One may go down via the easiest route, North, and join the "Col de Linas". Climbing still requires a good physical condition, and the mountain has claimed the life of at least one unprepared tourist.

  • We took the road over the pass near Bugarach to go from Limoux to the cathare castle ruins of Peyrepertuse and Quéribus. It's a lovely drive over the plateau near the the mountain of Bugarach.
