After a short transfer your route starts in Busquístar. Splendid views on this long and rewarding, walk through the Trevélez valley. Holm oak forests, ravines, old cortijos and fields overlooking a great valley that lies beneath the shadow of the Mulhacén peak (3479 m), the highest summit in mainland Spain. Trevélez is your goal, a town with three neighbourhoods beautifully hanging in a staggered way on the eastern slopes of Mulhacen. It is also considered the best producer of jamón serrano of the Alpujarras, which will enable you to finish the day tasting a delicious tapa of local serrano ham before dipping into the swimming pool at the hotel!
Challenge: 12 km / 8 mi, 5.5 hrs, 1000 m ascent, 500 m descent.
If you wish to start walking from the hotel, you will have 5.5 km / 3,5 mi, 200 m ascent, 80 m descent more, and around 7 hrs.
