Sierra Nevada (Spain) in the spring.

תיאור כללי

In Andalucia in southern Spain is found on the Iberian Peninsula the high – the Sierra Nevada. The area is characterized by a combination of the white villages of Andalusia with combined views of snow-covered mountains. The northern slopes of the Ridge are stained with a large ski resort and saunter further into the mountain roads but the South side – faces-alpoachra Valley remains pristine (relative to Europe of course) and allows numerous trips.

At the last Passover went 5 days section moving mostly in parallel for GR7 (Starting next to Gibraltar and continues through the Pyrenees to Greece) along alpoachra Valley.

Getting there/htniidot

The main entrance gateway for exploring the Sierra Nevada is the charming medieval town, Grande has a local airport and can fly fly concussion through Madrid Granada frequent departures to Lanjaron (An hour-hour and a half) and practically all the villages in the Valley.

Or you can go via Malaga has an international airport (no direct flights from Israel), a daily bus to Malaga Orjiva ו Lanjaron (כשלוש שעות).

We flew to Malaga through Brussels on $ 600 (Passover prices) and in return made night in Granada before returning to the ground, Malaga.

Hours and fees of the area can be found on http://www.alsa.es/portal/site/Alsa

עונה מומלצת
Andalusia is known for hot weather (like on Earth) and seasonal excursions to the mountains are divided into two main periods –

  1. Summer (June – September) – this season not snowy Ridge and the weather allows travel between the peaks, between the peaks of the main ridge called Cuesta de los tres miles (Rotate three ineffective translated alfimim) however we recommend a walk in the valleys due to the heat.
  2. Spring (March-May)/autumn (October-November) – during those snowy Ridge and the weather is not too hot to walk in the valleys, we were at the end of March and a rash of spectacular peaks. However, all rising to the mountain itself requires scrutiny of weather and an alternate route in case of rough weather.

We went at the end of March so the course is appropriate to describe this period.  


משך / קושי
In general there are two main trails allow hiking in the Sierra Nevada.

  1. GR7 – for moving along the alpoachra Valley in the southern slopes of the ridge and generally not a significant challenge for the traveler (days of around 500 m ascent descent, between villages, frequent access to buses) for some eight to 10 total segments in the Sierra Nevada area.
  2. SulayrGR240-for relatively high and moving the Sierra Nevada range at 19 days relatively long segments (over 20 km per day, 1000 m ascent/descent on average per day).

It is also possible to combine the paths and mountain cost himself some sections depending on the weather, of course.

מזון \ מים
Food and water can be found in any of the many villages along the way (although the pork breeding anywhere can be a little tricky for us training). In General, each time going up the mountain itself has no reason to stock up for more than one day.

לינה
We hiked with a tent – which turned out to be unnecessary after the fact since in the field are only allowed in the campsites are arranged (rare and are only on the side of the road) or above 2000 (this snow season) as well as any village you can find a place to stay at reasonable rates of 30-40 euros per couple per night on the mountain itself there is one active cabin this season – a Poqueira – Other places marked on the map as Refugio on the Ridge are actually hosted by stone designed for hikers in the summer and spring are similar to an igloo.

מדריך טיולים
We removed the the chapter on hiking in Andalucia from Lonely Planet – Walking in Spain The official website of cost 2 pounds as the Lonely Planet Guide was the Guide on effective design is nice but useless reading trip and actually describes walking relatively attractive options for this season.

We also previously published in the Google box's Guide Cicerone על ה GR7

התמצאות
Does the trail marks morglim in particular the Alpine countries are frequent markings and trails tend to disappear, especially near the villages of extraordinary is the GR7 The most marked and path controls. map (1:40000) can be found in souvenir shops and tour in Granada and Malaga.

עלויות
Spain is not a country, but Andalusia is considered cheap in relation to the North and certainly in comparison to other European countries. You can expect the cost of 30-40 euros a person per day so that a week-long trip for two weeks is about as particularly valuable.

The following rates are averages, and constitute a gross picture of costs expected to couple in the Sierra Nevada:

  1. Bread – half euros (recommend to stay away from the local – the bread pan casero – expensive and delicious).
  2. Pizza restaurant – 6-7 euros.
  3. Mountain accommodation – € 19.
  4. The three-hour trip by bus – 10 euros
  5. Double room in the village – 30-40 euros.

The itinerary –

Start – the village Lanjaron Is the gateway to the West and the relatively big village is alpoachra and therefore less from his Eastern paintings in the village can be reached by bus from Malaga and Granada and hotels, supermarkets, restaurants and ATM are recommended to visit the ruined Moorish castle on the cliff South of the village.

  • Day 1 – Lanjaron – Pamapniera A relatively long day, can be harvested by accommodation inSoportujarsuperior lnachron the path through the picturesque village of Canar (3 hours walk, supermarket), Canar , the trail crosses the dam and views first impressive snowy peaks and continues until the village is less than Soportujar (2-3 hours), from where the trail enters canyon cliffs Valley of Poqueira village Pamapniera tourist but beautiful (two hours walk, grocery, hotels , Restaurants).
  • Day 2 –
Pampaniera – Capilliera – short day designed to keep at least a half-day hiking in the area Capilliera, the trail rises from pmpaniira through the village of Bubion (1 hour) and Capilliera (another hour), we recommend that you take advantage of the day hiking into the Valley Poquiera views of the highest peak in Spain – the Mulhacen.
  • Day 3 – Capillera – Refugio Poqueira This day increased mount and prolonged snow and therefore recommended only after scrutiny of weather and phone ahead to make sure it is open (you can get the number of tourist offices pmpaniira or kpiliira).  The trail ascends almost 1000 meter kpiliira mildly up near the Hoya del Portillo, curve for before the checkpoint leaving North Canal (called alta acenqua) along this canal travels a relatively level with lovely views down the ridge and climb about one kilometer below the cabin until the cabin itself – snow cover in spring most of the second half of the trail.
  • Day 4 – Refugio Poqueira-Trevelez – Those who have walking on snow equipment can climb to the top of the Mulhacen (1000 feet from the cabin but the increase is relatively difficult and requires climbing capabilities) and then down through 7 village lagoons Trevelez, (...) you can continue on the Eastern extension to the viewpoint Mirador de Trevelez away the trail cuts directly to the village of Trevelez, about 1100 m below this day relatively short (we felt we needed a little rest at this point).
  • Day 5 – -Trevelez Cadiar This great day from Trevelez along the GR7 and the first climbs to GR240 the cutting the line eastwards over the village of Brechules, where the decline is through farmland to the village from Brechules the trail in beautiful landscape between the villages Alcutar and Narila to the village in this part of the Valley Cadiarfrom Cadiar has frequent buses to Granada (5 hours) and almriia (6 hours).
  • It is at this point we took a bus to Granada, there was another day and another trip to the northern slopes of the Ridge Village Guejar Sierra (A half hour bus ride from Granada to a charming village is a starting point for trips to the North to Valley Ridge).

    I think the trip is a great option for this period of Easter (one week off, not very nice and expensive), you can also take a stroll in the summer but the nature of the trip and the peaks are snow-capped mountains so that some of the magic was gone.

    It is highly recommended.

    Thank you very much.

    As I hiked Greece for Holy week (the week before Easter) many people were on the mountain – almost all of them local, have encountered relatively little valleys, but most tourist villages (kpiliira, terblse, pmpaniira).

    Not nzdkekno to convergent on snow gear, trails well marked mountain trails in the valleys (Orange high sticks) but it is important to note that checked the weather before the increase because of snow mountain in light weather isn't easy and bad weather.

    If we want to get to the peak Mulacen and the seven lagoons to the East bmordotav were required to walk on snow.

    The deep snow I appreciate, I guess it's pretty deep (but I don't have a scale)

    Here weather site for Sierra Nevada.

    . There is one point that there was a buildup of snow, the other without a problem.

    I don't know, you should ask those who wrote the message above.

    After almost two months of the GR11, realize that prohibition of tents is quite a joke, and the Spaniards didn't really relate to just tenting and late.

    Probably until the end of October, maybe November. hard to answer early November.

    His very late winter this year in Western Europe it is difficult to predict what happens next. Naty_h 41562.6597800926
