The summer view from Alcazaba summit area looking towards the northern face of Mulhacen. The Laguna de la Mosca is situated in the bowl to the right of the mountain and the Collado del Ciervo is to the right.
This view is taken from just above the Verada de Estrella path to the north of Mulhacen. Access is via the town of Guejar Sierra. The approach from this side is long and arduous but the mountain is seen at its best, particularly in winter. In this view Alcazaba is to the left and Mulhacen to the right.
Footpath near Poqueira hut at 2500 meters height,
from here this splendid path leads to Capileira (1400m)
following river Rio Poqueira very close.
Plenty of water available !
This walk takes around 4 hours and total of 6 hours
when climbing down from the Mulhacen.
Go straight down from Mulhacen 2 and you will go
allmost birdway to Capileira.
There is also hostals (B&Bs) in Bubion
and Pampaneira where I stayed.

What makes you want to go up in the first place?
It´s all about when man meets mountain.
Not all mountains need heroes.
This photo is taken from the ´collado de guardia´ at 2600 meters, going from our country hotel ´Casa Rural El Paraje´ in Berchules taking the high route to Trevelez (at the foot of the mulhacen).
I´m looking at the eastside of the mulhacen.
You will find this foto on our website as well under chapter ´sierra nevada´
