Gipuzkoako txokorik ezkutuenean
Araortz valley located in Oñati is one of the most reserved natural places in Gipuzkoa. Sumbmerged between the mountain ranges of Aizkorri, Zaraia and Elgea, in a basin we can go through the gap of Jaturabe. The main road leads to the level of mount Orkatzategi by a gorge surrounded by a main forest landscape with the rocky wall surfaces composed by limestone where we can appreciate the implausible “Ojo de Aitzulo”. If we focus on the starling landscape we can appreciate the unbelievable flights of the raptor species along with the whispers made by the wind.
Following down the road, by crossing a bridge we get the access by the narrow pass of Jaturabe. This mountainous gorge possess a tiny lake that shows up an unbeleivable water surface that gives more unique beauty to this natural rocky landscape.
