    Beautiful mountain
    La Maroma, also known as Tejeda, at 2066 m of altitude, is the highest peak of the Sierra Tejeda, Cordillera Penibética, Spain. From the town Canillas De Aceituno there is a walking path all the way up to the mountaintop of La Maroma. You have to try this. Just beautiful! - If you want to see detailed description of the walking route then see my profile on www.EveryTrail

    El Techo (discutido) de Málaga
    Monumneto natural y cumbre del Parque de la Sierra Tejeda-Almijara. En invierno con nieve su ascensión por la cara norte es fantástica.

My wife and I are very lucky to call Andalucía our home. When we open the curtains in the morning, this is what we see. If you are in for a landscape that is of astounding beauty and a still original untouched ruggedness, you must come and visit the Axarquia region, just east/north east of the city of Málaga. White villages, small authentic and honest (ridiculously cheap) restaurants and welcoming people are here to be discovered.

The walk up Maroma can be started and finished by several different routes. I would recommend all who are planning the walk to do some research as not all routes are equal. Also the window for walking has to be considered as it can be very hot or very cold. Ideal times to walk are May and September. be prepared to walk for more than 8 hours buy the route we took.
We chose to start at the El Alcazar Picnic area near Alcaucin and finish at Canillas de Aceituno. This is not the easiest route. The walk up is hard but very enjoyable and offers magnificent views over Vinuela. The walk down is more difficult. We found the path difficult to find to start with then the amount of loose stone on the path very hard work.
I would certainly do the walk again and would start at the Alcaucin point but I think I would plan to finish to the north, we are all looking forward to it.

Very poor service, furthermore, the food is as expected if it were on a fast food resturant. Therefore I would never recommend this place to others as it is too expensive and to poor quality.

An absolutely fantastic at the end of march. I walked from the North side and had a great time in the nature and the forrest surrounding La Maroma from the North side/ the highland and up. Its a tough walk which can be done in about 4.5 hour all in all if you hurry up :-)

Had a dramatic walk up Maroma on a cold February day, starting (this time) from the Alcauca campsite east of Ventas de Zaffaraya - one of 3 routes up Maroma that you'll find in the Discovery walking guide to the Axarquia. First a walk up the wooded Loma de las Viboras following red markers on the trees, then the clear and well-made path past the Castillones pinnacles and up the next section of Loma de las Viboras, where I started finding patches of ice and snow and a light snowfall started. Met one lone walker coming down who said it was snowy higher up... and it was - up to 4-6" of soft snow higher up as I followed the very clearly wayposted route along the southern flank of Barranco del Espino and headed over the Collado del Espino (the shallow col at the head of the barranco). From there I followed the path across two strips of pine forest, past the Fuensanta spring & the noticeboard beside it (seems improbable, so high up - and still running in the snow), up to the ridge - now in welcome winter sunshine - and then on across windswept ice and snow towards the top, where the ice-shrouded cairn was a dramatic sight.
