An exceilent walk, certainly one of the best in the Aitana Range. A circular walk, not too hard, or long or high, which crosses the sierra and encompasses views and aspects of both sides of the range. Passing through the narrow Paso Contador , (much enlarged since the days when sheep could be counted singly as they passed). Spectacular views of the Sierras Bernia and Aixorta to the east and the Arc valley leading to Selia to the west. Soon followed by a stiff climb over the ridge of El Carrascal with a shady place at the summit from which to admire Puig Campana and Sanxet before descending into the wooded Sanxet valley with its Buddhist colony. Returning over the lip of Sanxet, (pause to take in the views), to pass below the "waterfall," (occasional), and the overwhelming cliffs of the "Habitaciones de Dios".
Two different starts are described below. For large groups, a start from Restaurant Raco de Pepe is best. For smaller groups start from Almaseras is our choice.
