Hi Forum members,

My name is Ellie and I preach in the Forum and try to share the experiences my trips either from abroad especially relevant technical information that would help others to plan effectively the following trips.
GR240 route did in October this year with a friend and got a great trip.


Description of the route in General:
It is a medium difficulty level, and is located in southern Spain in the so-called National Park Sierra Nevada. 288 km net length without kinks and is built in a circular fashion from 19 steps so that you can start at any point but by the first official visitors centre EL DORNAJO found in 23. Road between Granada Sierra Nevada town. The route mostly runs around the height of 2000 meters and must sleep in tent space though it can veer into nearby towns and several rpiogis distributed in some stage. The track marked in 2007 and still don't sell and so Tawil People we met on the track were primarily Spanish and little English and often daily segments and walk in GR240 itself. The only language that most people spoke Spanish and had especially in small towns and therefore better to learn a little Spanish.


Information sources:
1) the only book in English that found that contains information about all full path:

5) topographic maps of Spain:

7) official mile Park where authorities also watch:
Usopublico.sn.cma@juntadeandalucia.es
8) main bus company in the region:
Http://www.alsa.es/portal/site/Alsa

Arrival and departure:
1) to start flying by track – Grande, Malaga, Cordoba, Madrid, soilia. (Direct flight out of the country only for Madrid).
* We flew in direct flight via Brussels to grant the same back.
2) bus to Grande-ALSA company.
To reach the Grande takes: two scholarship, Madrid about 4.5 hours (you can also come by train, but a lot more expensive and still 4.5 hours). Soilia, Cordoba, about three hours.
There is a direct bus from Malaga airport to Granada twice a day, otherwise you need to catch a bus to Central station.
* We grant to Grande 2 hours and Grande ishnano in well-run camping ground is about 5 minutes walk from the central bus station (back).
3) bus from Grande Sierra Nevada town – no official station in the beginning of the route but you can ask the driver to stop and it is also said by the intelligence company. The big problem is that the bus runs only once a day, for at 9 a.m. and return at 17:00.
A second option is to go to the town of GUEJAR SIERRA within 45 minutes from Granada ALSA bus which runs approximately every hour to sleep there in organized camping or hotels and at approximately 9.5 km asphalt road with 750 meters it accumulates until the official route.
* We drove to the trailhead from Granada and back cut at the last stage GUEJAR SIERRA and directly there.
Bus to Granada.

There are several major roads and ports to small towns where passing buses in case of an emergency during the track.


Time, temperature and costs:
1) preferred per season is early autumn that is early September but you can do it all year round although it should take into account that largely runs at an altitude of 2000 and summer can be very hot when winter and winter can be dangerous.
* We do-5.10.2011-track 22.10.2011
The track 2) – the official route book NET including 288 km and is divided into 19 stages and time such average is between 15-19 days.
* We did the trail in 17 days with several alterations and additions.
3) hours light in October was approximately 12 hours of light when Sunrise and sunset are around 8.
4) – tpmartorot October temperatures in the mountains were around 15 per day and three night when cities were added about 8 degrees.
5)- flight: costs around 500 $ to Malaga through Brussels in the company
Brussels Airlines.
Buses: Grande scholarship about 10 euros.
Grande-Sierra Nevada, GUEJAR SIERRA about 5 euros.
Airport-Central Station-about 2 euro.
Camping regulated approximately 16 euros for two people.
In the tent.
Rpiogy regulated approximately 15 euros one about accommodation
15 euros warm meal, 5 euro breakfast
About euro mineral water 1.8 and 2.5 euros for water
Hot showers.
Pension/Hotel one star – about 40 euros for two
People
Hotel 2-3 stars -about 60 euros for two
People
The average restaurant meal – 30-40 euros for two
People

* Us out all costs for 21 days, except for personal shopping and fly about 500 euros a person.


Difficulty level:
The track is a net is 288 km but the distance will vary depending on the design of food and accommodation because there are only two towns in step 5 and 6 where you can stock up and get a good night's sleep in well-appointed. The rest of the steps needed to perform and sometimes. The terrain includes rocks, roads, mountain trails, sand paths, grass and mud. Rarely there are dangerous paths so that the offenses and the difficulty is mainly medium although rain can be a lot of mud. According to the book track NET has about 10000 m incremental ups and downs. The markings usually pretty good and clear and consist of pages of feet with leaf logo, and red stripes SULAYR caption. In phase one and two red stripes were just bandits on the stones. All the steps were also purposely signs at several key points in each level with the target name, direction and distance to it. At the beginning/end of each stage there is a sign the first agreement and with distance, UPS and downs and warnings similar to (though not always match).
* Us out around 300 km with 12000 m incremental ups and downs. The weight of our total portfolio ranges from 11-15 and 18-22 depending on the beginning or end of food procurement.


Food and water:
1)water – in the book are several water sources "SOURCE" regulated marked and maps, but in fact the same river Springs,
With easy exit through a small stone bath/(suitable for washing clothes). According to park authorities.
Purified and they recommend using tablets/filters. Besides you can fill 2 water passing towns
On the way. October is the end and the beginning of autumn rains in Spain and still around 2000 meters altitude there is always
Streams and springs flowing from the previous winter.
* We drank without special digestive issues what "SOURCE" and a lot of the springs/rivers that flowed in a way (of course, by simple logic rules such as not to drink from stagnant water, height changes are too small or too strong erosion) and carried a maximum of 3-4 litres for two people at any one time except days we knew in advance that there is no water at the accommodation (listed below in each stage).
The only time I used the filter drinking water (not boiling) was when he was an artificial river in one of the steps in a concrete chute and no other water in the environment.

2)food – unfortunately, there are no news in this field for the ultra Lite. There are no places on the trail without serious deviations which can obtain food (it refers to rpiogis, hotels, restaurants, farms, cattle, etc.) except 2 towns in step 5-6 and says the number of regulated rpiogy in step 17.
* Ohtzteidno Grande 4 5 days later and CAPILLERA towns in TREVELEZ 5-6 to 5-6 days later.
ABRUCENA town (off off) 12th 13th stage for another 4-5 days.
A very important detail is subject, in Granada and in all towns can't find filter tanks so the top of the country remains in storage and had to buy the top European standard (not one-time). At the end of the day we found the standard screw approximately 1 km outside town on the Friday stage TREVELEZ campsite tidy when we sought European gas tank and not found at all in this town, or Abrucena Capileira. Should be noted that the 460 g tank we bought in Granada to a boil about 30 liters of water. The track itself was a lot of nut trees (mainly near towns or houses), raspberry and Apple trees in the black one.

3)b -unfortunately there is no good news in this area too and must carry a tent and warm up to 2 kg-degrees at least in October, FEATURES The big advantage here is that you can legally sleep in according to the following rules:
Http://www.treksierranevada.com/camping
A great name that should send details by fax/email but
Looked at Park Headquarters and was told that should send them any information. It is designed more for personal security of travellers to keep identification information. Some rules are hard to resist, especially accommodation near roads accessible to vehicles and Forest Rangers have indeed (we met 3 times) walking along the roads. We saw them often during the day and saw them in the evenings and mornings. The only time ishnano near compared to asphalt road police arrived right at sunrise in 8 a.m. but had done nothing to keep the place clean.
Details of the accommodation will be in each stage.


Equipment and maps:
The track itself doesn't need special equipment in October except a good raincoat, cover bag and tent three seasons. It is recommended that any water filter and walking sticks. About the maps, we use GPS with topographic map in scale 1:25.000 of the whole area from section 5 information sources and record a guy who did all the track cycling two years ago from section 4. In addition there are maps at a scale of 1:40000 for each phase separately including the trail in section 1. In Grande and paper topographic maps visitors on a scale of 1:25000 of the area didn't include the check for the ITM in the markup of the pages and shiltim pretty good at most steps (albeit larger intervals than for Israel) and the problem with the maps and GPS, though helped in some places and walk.


In summary:
I think this is a very nice area and should reach him precisely after the winter when everything is blooming and there's still snow in high places.
For my taste the region has not yet developed enough relative to other trails and more recognized in Europe at the level of basic services to travellers in terms of information, signage, bed and food and water supplies and fits mostly for travelers who love quiet, landscaped area, frozen rivers and bathed afraid to carry high weights (or parts of the stage with a car).

I attached a file containing also lists each step in detail information from the book and GPS recordings:

Certainly seems to go in the spring and in the fall, all yellow and Brown looks promising green in spring. Must be cold.

Foot itches.

What a dilemma – go green when spring or in the fall when you have such quantities of raspberries?
Have problems with dogs, or last image doesn't represent?

[QUOTE = ladybug] what a dilemma – go green when spring or in the fall when you have such quantities of raspberries?

Raspberry was indeed (and King were nuts in bulk anywhere near towns) and therefore understand the dilemma. But in General, I think we have enough yellow in most seasons and therefore if you already go to places like this so it is better to go in the spring. The problem is that it always works out.

[QUOTE = ladybug]

There was quite a lot of steps in relation to the amount of people in orbit but very friendly and others just don't come. It's not something to worry about.

Excellent summary and the beauty of TomTom, the summary before I went, so keep it to the second round in this beautiful area for me.
Visitors Center 23. arrived on a bicycle but unfortunately it was closed, the fact that you can ride it all is very interesting, in depth for the second round of the investment documentation.

Some ttospot:

Accommodation in Granada:

El Carmen Escudo 6 12-14 euro per night downtown Hostel. You can cook it's tools and know its tram

The food tztidot 2 km away before the bridge there is a super huge and cheap rcdona network.

Buses Granada Sierra Nevada Sierra del gihar:
Price EUR 4.5 has two on the first day in a bus terminal 0900 Grenada II in 1700, the bus reaches a little above the Prado Llano station,
Arrival at Sierra del gihar is split in k. recall 16th
Facing up to the Sierra del gihar what appears on the face of her mtgamdat horrible when you realize it's nothing compared to the Sierra Nevada.

Lovers of grads find interest in this route is Thad.
This year the Sierra was our very.

Filter containers interesting question glad found accessible and inexpensive way, Grande Madrid night bus also Valencia Barcelona expensive way from Granada and not worthwhile economically.

Cheap flights Valencia must be very Turkish if land for sale Granada name should be, rather than a direct continuation of cost 260היתה euros., there is no reason now to pay $ 500. .

There are two bus Madrid terminali away continue to Grenada, one of them belongs to ELSA, can be purchased at the Elsa tickets and pay by PayPal so you should register your PayPal password so you can use it.
On the road, you can also pay by credit card only Spanish, meaning there is no way to buy a bus ticket network site of ELSA International credit card. .

I loved the bike, reporting and proper picture secondly dirt bike you can rent in Granada at 12 euros per day, this trip on a bicycle requires a lot of experience in riding, and physical fitness costs rising to these spires, the bike hire directory location for Alhambra ibrria Bookstore,
I wrote a full report on the subject of Ordesa Monte Perdido park planning and execution, should take into account that you cannot ride a bike with pedals have standard or special shoes or other record pedal smoothes off the bike shoes in these lifts also experienced riders who are not equipped with recording or pedal shoes that allow the pedal stroke than to car as me, and the pedal were slippery.

About dogs, about 20. the animal station locally her French Director, including some in the area is in its many watchdogs.
