Gorge Walking in the Sierra Nevada region.
GORGE WALKS form an exiting part of a walking holiday in the Sierra Nevada. The routes follow the steep sided valleys of the area with spectacular sections of gorge walking. From the most accessible at Monachil where wire bridges criss cross the river to more adventurous routes in remote areas of the range. Gorge walks get you right into the heart of the mountains of Andalucia following stream beds, water channels and donkey tracks. Gorges can be either wet (even in summer) or dry and offer walkers fantastic mountain days without the strain of a long climb.
The gorge walks on offer are non technical routes following often off path routes through narrow defiles and natural caves, crossing swing bridges and often whilst wading knee deep in streams and pools. They are great fun for all ages and can offer a respite from the summer heat.
