56. Arrako-Kartxela-Bimbalet-Juan Pito-Arrako
Subir Lakartxela desde Arrako por el collado de Lapatia y redondear con la ascención al Bimbalet. Bajada circular por Arrakogoiti, Juan Pito y el Camino Real Isaba-Arrakogoiti.



Cerca del Rincón de Belagua, antes del inicio del puerto, un panel nos indica el SL-IS 3 Mata de Haya, parte del recorrido que va hasta el dolmen de Arrako. Sin llegar a él buscamos el camino, un poco en desuso por la vegetación, que por pleno bosque asciende al collado de Lapatia. Desde él podemos ascender al cercano Lapatia o seguir por la cresta hacia los picos de Keleta y Ezkieta. Por sus pasos aéreos, se recomienda bajar un poco a los caminos que suben ladeando hacia Kartxela (foto 1, panorámica). Se busca el collado entre las dos cimas en diagonal. Vista excepcional de Belagua, Kakueta y los vecinos Otxogorrigaiñe y, más lejano, Ory.

Descendemos al collado de Gimbeleta y seguimos el cordal hasta el puntiagudo Bimbalet. Retrocedemos un poco al collado de Bimbalet y buscamos la senda que a media altura cruza hasta el gran collado de Arrakogoiti, cruce ancestral entre España y Francia.

Por ladera despejada descendemos sin pérdida a la venta de Juan Pito y la curva de la NA-1370. Aquí nos aprovechamos de las marcas azules y rojas de los viejos caminos de Belagua, recién rebalizados (no homologados). Por este Camino Real Isaba-Arrakogoiti, balizado, bajamos de nuevo al llano donde nos esperan la ermita y el dolmen de Arrako (foto 2) y, un poco más abajo, el coche.

NOTA: Toda esta zona ha sido rebalizada durante 2018-19, por lo que es muy probable que el track coincida con una de las nuevas GR o PR de la zona.
