SIERRA DE LAS MAMBLAS

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking along a ridge at eye level with a flying Vulture. Sitting on the ridge with the wind in my hair after a warm climb to the top. Listening to the Monks sing. Sunrise on the last morning. Eating home made tapas in the sun.

What did you think of your group leader?

Bob was great, really knows the area well and nothing is too much trouble for him.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Learn a few Spainish phases before you go as this is not an area where you meet many English speakers. Limber up your knees before you go as a few of the descents were over loose stones. Bone up on a little Spanish history it will help understand the area.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This is not an area of dramatic scenery but the gentle rolling hills give wonderful walking. You will emerse your self in Spanish culture and learn there is more than straw donkey's and sangria to Spain.
