Mulhacen from the Poqueira Refuge

Mulhacen from the Poqueira Refuge

Although it is possible to climb Mulhacen in a day, especially in summer by taking the National Park bus to 2700m, a more leisurely approach is to spend one or two nights in the Poqueira Refuge.  This allows for an ascent via the Rio Mulhacen, passing the Caldera (bivouac) Refuge 3100m, before climbing Mulhacen’s West Ridge and descending the South Ridge. A splendid excursion, summer or winter.

The Poqueira Refuge (2500m) has a restaurant / bar service. There are hot showers available and Accommodation is on “alpine” bunks. The food is mainly good (occasionally not so) but plentiful and wholesome. Their website is good and has a webcam pointing towards Veleta 3394m, second highest peak in the Sierra Nevada.

Sierra Nevada Mountain Guides are always happy to answer your questions about the area and advise on route choice. We are available to guide you up Mulhacen and other mountains in Spain’s Sierra Nevada Mountains and Alpujarra.
