I invite you to join me on this 2-day ascent to the highest point in the Iberian Peninsula: the Mulhacen. With 3,480 meters above sea level, it is located inside the Sierra Nevada National Park in Granada and it’s part of the Penibetico mountain system.  

As for the itinerary, the starting point of our trip will be Hoya del Portillo in Capileira. On the first day, you will admire the most amazing pine trees. Then we’ll hike up to the Poqueira Refuge (2,500 meters), where we’ll spend the night.

On the second day, after breakfast, we’ll reach the Caldera Lake (3,000 meters) through the Mulhacen River. After a short break, we’ll start the ascent to the summit. During the ascent, you will discover a fantastic view of the astonishing Alcazaba walls. You will also admire the Mosca Lake at the foot of the Mulhacen.   

Take into account that a medium level of experience and fitness is required for this ascent. My last recommendation is to bring:

  • Mountain clothing and shoes
  • Sleeping bag and mat
  • Warm clothing
  • Windbreaker jacket
  • Food and water
  • Walking poles
  • Ice ax and crampons (in winter season)

So request to book and join me now. You won’t regret your choice!

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!
