The charms of Sierra Nevada

The Mulhacén with its 3,478 meters. It is the highest summit of the Sierra Nevada and the Iberian Peninsula, only surpassed in Spain by the Teide. From its summit we can see the Mediterranean Sea and the Moroccan Riff, Africa, and to the north the Vega de Granada. Its ascension by the normal route does not involve hardly any difficulties, although the use of mountaineering equipment is almost always necessary to reach its peak in winter.

The tour

We will depart from Capileira, we will visit this beautiful town of the Alpujarra of Granada, with the car we will arrive at the refuge in a beautiful approach by the ravine of the Poqueira river. and we will leave this one in the high acequia or in the Hoya del Portillo to leave for the Poqueira Refuge by the "Acequia Alta" or by the "Alto del Chorrillo", respectively. The ascent to the refuge will take us about 4 hours. The next day we will ascend to the Laguna de la Caldera, from where we will begin the ascent to Mulhacén. We will descend to the refuge through the Loma del Mulhacén, in which we will also today the top of Mulhacén II.
