SIERRA NEVADA

ALL SUMMITS CHALLENGE

Sierra Nevada National Park |  4 days  |  Granada - Spain  | 

TREKKING SIERRA NEVADA

DESCRIPTION

 

We would like to invite you to discover Sierra Nevada walking over the massif from
Northeast to Southwest, always above 3000 meters of height.

 

During this trek, you will also enjoy the views of Granada, the Mediterranean Sea and Africa, if climate helps. We will approach to the mythical summits of the Sierra Nevada range, all of them over the 3000 meters, like Picón de Jeres, Picón de Vacares, Alcazaba, Veleta, Caballo and, of course, the hights summit in Spain in land, Mulhacen with 3479 meters.

 

It is an advanced trek in which we’ll have to spend the nights under the stars, except one night at Poqueira hut, we will find water by ourselves and the felling of loneliness will be present.

Besides, there is a possibility of doing an integral trek completely autonomously, without going through the Poqueira Hut.

We offer you 4 trekking days and 3 nights. The first one in bivouac, only covered by stars.

We will spend the second night in a guarded hut where you can recover energies and provisions. The last one night, will be in a non guarded refuge or if you want, under the starry sky again.
