RIO PEREILAS VALLEY, MONDA

Leaving the venta, the walk follows a path behind a small industrial building into the foot hills below Sierra Alpujata. It passes through avocado groves and almond trees until it reaches the Mancha Valley with a view of the white cliffs of a dolomite quarry (dolomite is used in glass making and furnace linings). Turning away from the quarry the trail leads along the side of the valley looking down onto the river, Rio Pereilas, running through the rich fertile valley. It loops round and up a short incline after which it passes up through pine woods ending, eventually, back at the starting point.
