Over 50 hikers from the Almuñécar Hiking Club (PMD) had a great Sunday out down Almería way, in the area of Sorbas.
As you bomb along the A-7 enroute to Mojácar you can see the abandoned hamlets in the Sorbas area; enticing views but you can’t stop, so an opportunity like this to do it on foot was not to be missed.
In the words of the guide, Enrique Garín, “it is an area of marked contrasts between the aridity of the desert and Río de Aguas; between abundant gypsum crystals and towering rock walls.”
The walking group started off from Sorbas and after visiting the Yesos information centre they began the walk through the hanging houses of Sorbas and the Cortijadas Urra.
Later, they reached the birth place of Río de Aguas and the natural openings and tunnels, as well as the jungle-like walls of wild bamboo.
The next walk will be on Sunday the 11th through the Sierra de Huétor between Molnillo and Sillar Baja.
