Mountain
“Mongo National Park. Great walking and views. The climb to the top is a solid climb, not to be underestimated. Park for free at the shooting range, just off the road from Javea Old Town to Denia, then walk the hundred metres back to the car park entrance (NOT all the way to the road) where there is a map. Take that path to the right through bushes towards the mountain. The path goes through bush which shelters it and can lead to muddy patches after rain. Where this path joins a private road, turn right (again towards the mountain) and walk for a kilometre or so to an open area and look for the path on the right. This is the start of the climb proper and quickly progresses to a rocky set of switchbacks/zig zags, always climbing. The surface is rough with loose rocks and requires solid shoes. If you try to do it without stops, the climb is quite hard and tests your fitness but stop to take in the glorious views, and it becomes a little more relaxed. Towards the top, the path leaves the face overlooking Denia and the car park and goes round the corner to overlook Ondara. It is here that the path as such ceases and it becomes a rock scramble and the route travels along a steep drop. It's all quite manageable but it requires care and could challenge those who do not like heights. I wasn't concerned. The top gives a panorama that is breathtaking but which might disappear at any moment due to cloud. Don't underestimate the importance of the mountain and its weather - take water, some food and emergency clothing and tell someone when you expect to be back. Cell phone coverage was good when I climbed. Even so I was very tired when I returned to my car. It took me a total of three hours fifteen minutes car to car.”
