Date: Wednesday, 13th January 2021

Winter magic in the Sierra de las Nieves. A very special circular hike through the snow-covered Pinsapo forest to the ice fountain on the summit of the 1813m high Cerro Alto.

sierra nieves snow 02This tour starts at 1300 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Sierra de las Nieves, this is also the startin point to the highest peak, but this time we go up to the old ice fountain, built at around 1,600m to get the ice before electricity was invented. It filled with ice in the winter, which was then transported with donkeys to Ronda in summer. From there we continue to the top of Cerro Alto with a stunning all around view.

On the way back we walk the "Cañada de las Ánimas", the path of the souls, a path through dense forest that looks enchanted, overgrown with lichen and moss, and inhabited by fairies and ghosts ...
