Los Cahorros, Monachil

4.7
#1 of 19 in Nature in Province of Granada
Hike over wooden bridges, across narrow cliffs, around caves and waterfalls, and to lush views at Los Cahorros. Start by crossing over three hanging bridges, with a huge waterfall beneath you. To cross one gorge, you'll need to balance on a narrow cliff edge next to the whitewater, and in some places you'll use metal rings in the cliff as handholds where the cliff hangs over the water. Once you’ve crossed the gorge, you can take a break at a picnic area to eat and enjoy the sights. The rest of the hike takes you along fields of cherries, olives, oranges, and grapes. There are restaurants near the beginning and end of the hike. Bring plenty of water and comfortable shoes. Parts of this hike may be too challenging for small children.

  • You can do this walk in two directions. We have done them against clockwise. Departure to the parking in the village. There is a board with plan. Starting with a excellent climb and left to the river down past the central begins the walk. Total of 5 suspension bridges. Follow the path and after the 5 the bridge to the left. Now a solid climb up to the top (little or no signs along the side). Finally, follow the direction of Monachil. Now across the bridge back to starting point.

  • Hello!it's a very cool route but....... it has some quite dangerous stretches, you have nowhere to hold, in a section there is a steel rope that gives you security but there should be more stretches like that. When leaving the river sickle there is no good signage to return. Anyway, what's said is really cool. Greetings.
