Go to Monachil via the Los Cahoros Mountain Route to see the beautiful nature of Andalucia. You can enjoy beautiful views, waterfalls, and a babbling mountain river there. Join our Waterfall Hike Activity and enjoy it.
Los Cahorros is the ideal place for a picnic and a walk. This place offers a magnificent view of the mountain reliefs and the walk is punctuated with numerous bridges and passages that make the hike even more pleasant.
For people who love climbing, this place is also ideal. There are two walks you can go on in Los Cahorros – one high and one low. The two are largely feasible to do in a day.
You can go all year, but it is particularly scenic in autumn, when the leaves are starting to change colour, and spring, when the meadows just above the gorge are covered in flowers.
How to arrive?
By car: From Granada, take the Vergeles/La Zubia/Cájar/Monachil exit from the A-395 southern ring road (Ronda Sur). At the roundabout, take the exit for Monachil and Cájar. Follow this road for roughly 6 km, past a roundabout and two sets of traffic lights, until you reach the village of Monachil. After you enter the village, follow the signs for public parking for Los Cahorros. The signs lead you to a car park on the south side of the river at the far end of the village, near the sign marking the start of the walk.
By bus: Service 183 goes to Monachil approx. once an hour Monday – Friday. On Saturdays, the service is mornings only, with the last bus back at 13:40, and there is no service on Sundays. Service 181 goes more frequently to Barrio Monachil, but this is some way short (approx. 2km) of Monachil village. Click here for more info and links to current timetables.
