Monte Perdido in Aragon, Spain was officially climbed in 1802 and the first climb on skis was in 1906.Monte Perdido also means Lost Mountain because of the amount of people that have hiked this mountain range over the years and some have never returned. The hike is extremely difficult where you cross paths with different levels of glacier tiers that have protruding rock features.Below this magnificent Pyrenees mountain range sits an isolated hotel surrounded by lush green hillsides and exceptional mountain ranges with the Cinca River being its closest neighbor. The hotel is the perfect place to stay for a remote vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the larger cities of Aragon, Spain.You will need to book a room in this elegant hotel in the Pyrenees mountain range in Aragon if you are planning to attempt hiking Monte Perdido as you will need a soft bed to collapse on after your extremely challenging day.
