After the days of confinement, many will be the people who will want to enjoy stays outdoors , in addition to being in contact with nature . Spain is a lucky country because it has many destinations that meet these requirements. They are options that can be taken into account for small getaways or to spend vacations in which, at the moment, it seems difficult to make trips abroad. And, although the possibilities are diverse, we are going to focus on Sierra Nevada .
Sierra Nevada is one of the most beautiful environments in Spain. Within this Natural Park , a good route is the ascent to Pico del Mulhacén . Obviously, not everyone has the physical condition or the possibilities to reach its top, but it is well worth approaching it.
This mountainous system, one of the highest in Western Europe, offers a natural environment of great beauty in which you can enjoy more than 2,000 plant species , which attract attention for their color, especially in the flowering season.
The fauna is also worthy of attention. The mountain goat is one of its main attractions, and perhaps the most striking, along with birds, mammals and amphibians, not forgetting reptiles.
It is a landscape that can be enjoyed through various routes or trails with varying difficulty. One of the simplest, and also considered the most beautiful, is the one that starts from Capileira and runs through the Poqueira refuge area to make a stop before reaching the top.
It is a route, of more than 20 kilometers, that runs next to a water channel and, when you reach the destination, you have traveled an area that has a drop of 4,000 meters . From this height, there are impressive views , which well compensate for the effort made.
