This walk takes us from the white village of Cartajima, perched above the chestnut tree-filled Genal valley, up over the craggy limestone mountains of the Serrania de Ronda, and down into Ronda town.
A short drive takes us south from Ronda to Cartajima village, one of seven in the High Genal Valley which survives largely from the production of chestnuts. The trees fill the mountainsides and valleys as far as the eye can see and provide an ever-changing landscape through the year.
From Cartajima we climb steadily up into the ridge of craggy limestone mountains which separate the Genal valley from Ronda. We pass interesting rock formations, old threshing circles, sections of ancient drovers' paths and walk below a sheer cliff, onto a large karst plain leading to a spectacular view over to Ronda. From here we descend steadily down into Ronda, entering the town through the southern district of the Barrio San Francisco. A cooling drink on the plaza makes a great reward for your efforts.

Great Hike, for both of us, with Heather through farm fields, olive orchards, crossed a small river then hiked up to a lovely restaurant for lunch alongside a beautiful stream.
