Alto de las Chorreras is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.371m (7,778ft) above the sea level, located in Granada province, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
The road to the summit, located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. With such a high summit altitude the road can be closed anytime due to snowfalls.
