Pico del Chullo

Pico del Chullo

Pico del Chullo is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.520m (8,267ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Granada and Almeria, in southern Spain’s Andalusia region. It's one of the highest roads of Spain.

The road to the summit, located within the Sierra Nevada National Park, is gravel, bumpy and rocky. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. The trail is very steep. It’s one of the scariest roads of the country.
The road can be closed anytime due to snow and ice. It’s usually impassable from November to March. 4x4 required. Expect cold and high winds. At the summit there’s a mountain hut. Starting from Puerto de La Ragua, the ascent is 3.6km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 476 meters with an average gradient of 13.2%, but with sections up to 20%.
