    Would you like to climb a snow-caped mountain over 2000 m? If your answer is ‘yes’ let me tell you about one of the most exciting hiking trips near Murcia.

    In the North-West of the region, spread along Andalucias’s and Castilla-La Mancha borders, thera are five summits higher than 2000 m. Although Guillamona is not the highest, La Sagra (2381 m) is, it’s one of my favorite ones. Among the facts because I like it most I would highligth three; fist of all, it’s an easy and non risky walk, secondly, it’s not usually crowded and then, the views are, by far, really awesome.

    However, there are some cons that we should bear in mind. It’s not easy to get there. I mean, the road is narrow and it can be frozen in winter. It’s really lonely and solitaire, therefore nobody will find you if you get in trouble. And, last but not least, there is a fence just in the summer. It’s not ans obstacle but it’s as ugly as sin and the beauty of the wild is broken by it.

    So, to make a long stroy short, I’d recomend this hike to anyone willing to reach a high peak but ina safe way. The reoute is well-ballanced; it’s challenging but not risky at all.

     

    Summary
    Distance: 9,6 km.
    Elevation gain: 546 m.
    Technical difficulty: medium
    Phisycal difficulty: medium.
    Comments: Pay attention to ice on the road. The last slope to the summit can be dangerous withe ice. Although is an easy route, is not suitablefor begginers
