Los Cahorros, Monachil

4.7
#1 of 11 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.

  • A beautiful route, was our choice since they closed sierra nevada! Beautiful setting with bridges and finally binge very rich in terrace mills in the village of Monachil

  • A special tour, unique environment, above all with a day as clear as he enjoyed it. A steep slope to reach the Highlands and the suspension bridge with any need of repair table, but nothing dangerous. On the side of the Gorge areas in which there are Crouching and holding hooks on the wall because there is little space.

  • The hike is not for staters but very rewarding. If the waterlevels are high be sure to be extra carefull as the difficulty level increases considerabel.  more »

  • Definitely worth checking out, but getting there is a bit confusing and the main trail in the ravine is tough to navigate at spots. Views are amazing and the "alto" trail is beautiful.
  • Great place for a wee adventure. Fun hanging bridges and mini mountaineering in the gorge. Lost of other paths to walk around and explore the area.
  • Great walk up the canyon, if you are of a nervous disposition, I wouldn't advise it.
  • A lovely walk along the river from Monachil up to the Cachorros. It can be a little difficult underfoot and, towards the top, a series of swinging bridges might test one's nerve. Totally worth it for the views though! There are some climbing routes at the top, with pre-drilled bolts for clipping protection to. Otherwise, carry on past and on into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
  • Great place! Amazing views! It was summer when I visited it and it was really hot. Take water !
