This superb mountain hike will take you round the Sales plateau and onto the border ridges of the Herault and Aude. The rigorous climate on these high granite hills has favoured the formation of peaty bogs, beech woods and highland meadows: a wild and beautiful landscape. The ageless rock-lined tracks and wind-tortured beech trees are a delight and lead you through charming hamlets of stone houses which blend naturally into their surroundings: Sales, Lebrat, le Bayle ... Newcomers enchanted by the lonely solitude are slowly bringing back life to these hamlets which were the victims of the rural exodus. Moving on just round a rocky ridge you will come across one of the most beautiful views of the Montagne Noire: an incredible panorama of the Minervois hills rolling down to the Languedoc plains with, as a backdrop, the majestic summits of the Pyrenees towering over all.
