Cola de Caballo, Cascada

(Circo de Soasa)

Cascada Cola de Caballo or Cascada Circo de Soasa is without a doubt one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Spain and one of the most impressive ones. The river Rio Arazas thunders down over 100 meters creating one of the best horsetail waterfalls I have ever seen. Look close to the picture where someone is standing in front of Cascada Cola de Caballo(first picture), then you really see how big Cascada Cola de Caballo is.

Cascada Cola de Caballo is part of Parque Nacional de Ordesa and is located near Torla in the region Aragon-Huesca, Spain.

From Biescas drive to Torla over road N260a, take the turn to Torla and Parque Nacional de Ordesa. There is the entry of the parc where it is possible to take several hikes. We choose the easy one, along the river Arazas, to the end of the valley where Cascada Cola de Caballo is located.

From the parc entry near Torla is takes 3-4 hours to get to the end. On the road/trail to Cascada Cola de Caballo you will pass by several waterfalls that are even more beautiful then Cascada Cola de Caballo: Casada del Estrecho, Cascada de Cotatuero (from a distance), Gradas de Soasa, Cascada de Arripas and several other small or unnamed falls.

I really can say this is one of the best hikes I’d ever take with beautiful sceneries and wildlife. So don’t miss it.
