Cahorros de Monachilis a hiking trip close to Granada. We will start in Cumbres Verdes and walk along the Monachil valley with its famous Cahorros. An exciting ecotourism trip in Sierra Nevada National Park, with great views and diverse landscapes, finishing in the spectacular gorge of the Cahorros de Monachil"
We will get off the bus in Cumbres Verdes and start our hike. For the first part of the walk, we will have views down to the city of Granada and its agricultural plain. The path runs through a quite open countryside and sections of forest.
After surrounding the Cerro Huénes hill we will make an important descent to reach the valley of the river Monachil. With its wild flowers, fruit trees, cascading and Tibetan bridges to cross the gorge, the lush Monachil valley is one of the most beautiful areas for walking near Granada. This walk is particularly recommended when the flowers mare out in spring.
The path through the gorge is quite awkward in some sections due to lack of head clearance. Los Cahorros is an enjoyable hike. We will make use of the metal handles set into the rock and will walk always next to the river.
