La Serra dels Bufadors (Catalonia)

Recently, I had a fantastic time exploring “La Serra dels Bufadors,” a mountain range located near Santa Maria de Besora between the Osona and Ripolles regions.

The views are spectacular high in the mountain range. What is more incredible, however, is the strange inner corridor you can find between the peaks. It appears that, at some point, the mountain cracked and split apart, creating a unique and fragile micro-ecosystem.

Holes can be found in the soil. Passing them, we could feel cold air escaping and, sometimes, we could feel how the air whistles inside. This whistling noise is where the name Bufadors (blowers) comes from.

Many of the principal holes have been explored by speleologists. However, because of the unstable terrain and the danger that it represents, the interest in studying and exploring them has decreased.
