The trip:
We will start our guided hiking trail from Orgiva in the las Alpujarras region in southern Spain. This village is the administrative and commercial centre of the lower Alpujarras in Andalusia. We will walk through it’ s streets and head to the district called Los Agustinos. A lovely walk along the valley.
From here we will begin to ascend and cross the river Cadiar.
The ascent will be 400m until we arrive at Campuzano hill.
While following the path we will get some spectacular views.  The track continues to the highest point of our trip with 1,078m.
After reaching the top we will walk downwards and head to Mecina by following the zigzag paths.
The little bridge over the river Trevelez is a good stop to enjoy the atmosphere and the magnificent surroundings of the Sierra Nevada.
The remaining track will lead us through traditional agricultural terraces of las Alpujarras.We will walk through fields, farmlands and old chestnut trees.
We will have a little break in Fondales before we start to ascend to Pitres, the last stage of our hike.
