2-day Mulhacen ascent in Sierra Nevada

This trip was amazing and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in hiking. We went on 9 and 10 of December but we were lucky and the weather conditions was really good. The nature and the view were fascinating. Alejandro was an excellent guide! Very professional and a very nice guy. All these elements combining together made this trip an unforgettable experience!

2-day Mulhacen ascent in Sierra Nevada

That was a blast, I truly had a wonderful time! Everything went just perfectly, thanks a lot to my guide Alejandro for your professionalism, patience and flexibility. I am looking forward to my next trek in the Sierra Nevada (or elsewhere, who knows?) and will definitely think of Nevalia

2-day Mulhacen ascent in Sierra Nevada

Alejandro could not be more perfect for anyone looking to summit Mulhacén! He planned our winter ascent impeccably and although we were very lucky with the weather (blue skies and epic views - if a tad chilly!), our successful and joyful climb was very much down to him and his attitude . I would also add that as far as mountain refuges go, Mulhacén's is a goodie :)
