The guidebook covers the most popular and interesting walks and multi-day treks in Spain's Sierra Nevada mountain range. Mainland Spain's highest summit Mulhacén is included in the 38 routes along with the white villages of Trevélez, Lanjarón and Capileira and high mountain ridge traverses, scrambles and the Spanish Three Peaks challenge.
The walks have been selectively chosen to showcase the Sierra Nevada's dramatic scenery, breathe taking barren rocky peaks, badlands, lush green valleys and tranquil lakes. From the more leisurely routes of the Cumbres Verde area to the Sierra Nevada's highest ascent of Mulhacén, we are confident there are routes to suit a range of abilities.

I have climbed some of the mountains in Sierras Tejeda Almujara and Alhama, but the high Sierra Nevada is a step up and this book is now my essential planning guide for a group of 15 of us taking to the mountains in a few weeks time. The overall layout of the book is perhaps the best thing about it. It makes it possible to plan for different abilities and levels of fitness. Great job Richard Hartley.

We have visited this area many times in the last 17 years and finally we now have this brilliant reference book to give us even more reason to return to a fantastic walking and camping venue in Spain. Many thanks Richard Hartley: a job well done!

A useful addition to my library of Spanish Walking books. As one would expect of Cicerone this gives good illustrated coverage of the main routes as well as some lesser known routes. Recommended.
