Walking above the Poqueira Gorge, check out our Ride&Hike page!
Above Niguelas and below Cerro Caballo, Trip 5 Private Charter
A short walk from the car takes us to this secluded waterfall
right in the middle of a rocky gorge
from there we gain hight quickly
and stop for a picnic at 2100m, 7000ft
by foot we can go even higher to some pre summits with spectacular views!
the track gets rougher as we proceed
or, in winter, even un-passable (same spot as previous picture)
The white villages and beyond (trip 4 of private charter)
Up to the white villages,
stop for a coffee and a stroll
Go beyond, on foot or by 4×4
walking along the ancient acequias (irrigation channels)
mountain streams everywhere!
get close to the main peaks of the Sierra
and drop by a spectacular waterfall on the way back down
High forestry tracks at the border of the National park, view points, Buddhist Monastery (see trips 2,3 and 7 of private charter, or Ride&Hike Trip 1)
As we climb beyond the last village..
the views open up..
..and the surroundings get lusher
we stop for a picnic in a meadow of flowers
and the scenery just keeps changing
a nice walk following one of the ancient irrigation channles
views to the high peaks..
..their image reflected in one of the local lagonas
if you haven’t felt you’re in the Himalayas so far..
..the Buddhist monastery might help to get you there!
Higher we go..
Horses are left to roam free up here
the tracks can get rough
an ancient tree offering its shade
what goes up..
..must come down
a spectacular end to the day!
