Climbing "La Concha" from Istán

Date: Thursday, 06 October 2022

The climb from Istán is challenging, it is shorter, but therefor steeper than from Juanar, the reward is the spectacular view of the Costa del Sol, the reservoir of Istán and the mountains in the hinterland


The reward for the hard ascent is the unsurpassable fantastic view! We begin our tour in Istán, enjoying the view over the village and the underlying lake of Istán. There is a steady rise that reaquires fitness and agility. Once we reached the top we follow the ridge, with views on all sides and down to Marbella. The trail on the ridge on the final kilometer to the summit is mostly not on the very edge, but it does require not to fear heights.
