Buddhist Colony Circuit

An excellent 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 Bemia and Aixorta to the east and the Arc valley leading to Sella 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 teke In the views), to pass below the "waterfall" (occasional), and the overwhelming cliffs of ths "Habitaciones de DIOS", followed by a gentle descent to the 3 Bars and Restaurants in the Rincon de Pepe area.
