Description

Explore one of the most amazing spots in Sierra Nevada, Spain on this 2-day hike. Lavaderos de la Reina (or “The Queen’s washing place” in English) is a meadowy area with incredible cascades of spring water and fantastic views of all Sierra Nevada.

We’ll meet in Lugros and hike into Dehesa del Camarate (or the Enchanted Forrest). We’ll then ascend toward the Soldier’s Stones to enjoy stunning views of Covatillas and Picón de Jeres. That night, we’ll sleep close to Lavaderos de la Reina.

On our second day, we’ll visit the amazing Black Chorreras. This place is known for its beauty and for being the site where an American plane crashed. You’ll be able to live in first person what all the brave souls experienced trying to save the survivors on a winter storm. We’ll then follow the Alhori River with its stunning waterfalls, towards the Postero Alto Refuge.

Make sure to bring mountain boots, adequate clothing, sleeping bag and mat, warm clothes, a windbreaker, food and water, and hiking poles. The tent is included in the price of the trip.

So book your trip now and get ready for a fantastic hiking adventure. I would love to be your guide!

About the guide

UIMLA Mountain Leader | AEGM Tour guide Mountain / Mountain Leader Sports Technician

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.

Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...

Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.

I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!

Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn't be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.

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!

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

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 :)
