Sierra Nevada. From Veleta to Mulhacén.
Time: Six hours.
From the road wich goes up to Veleta, before arriving at the junction wich runs to the left towards the top, we must turn right unti reaching the hill of Veleta, better know as the Carihuela 3164 m. high.
From a reservoir in disuse the Laguan de las Yeguascan be seen (Las Yeguas tarn), and a bit upwards, the Lagunilla (small tarn) de la Virgen. Through the Ciervo´s hill we shall reach the pass of the Machos, 3327 m. high. We shall walk on through the black cliffs of Río Seco, from where a lane branches, again dotted with tarns. From there two lanes branch off to the top of Mulhacén, 3481 m. high. This will take up one hour of the time. From the top we can see Las Alpujarras in the south, and the Laguna de la Mosca in the north, in a wild landscape.
