Description

Emblem of the Sierra de Guara, the Mascun is certainly one of the most famous canyons in the world and one of the favorites of canyoning enthusiasts. This canyon is all the more unique that it is only possible to descend it in water in spring. Indeed, it is dry the rest of the year.

The day begins with a long but beautiful approach walk that passes through an abandoned village, then the Mascun course begins with a 7 meter jump, then follows the descent of the "saltador de las lanas" composed of a 20 meter abseil. Then comes a succession of abseils and beautiful hanging basins.

After a walking zone, we enter the particularity of this canyon, the "pozo negro", a narrow and dark zone that takes you to a cave of spectacular dimensions. After several passages in this cave, the canyon opens gradually to take us to the chaos of Otin. The end of the canyon is then near.

If you are sporty and you come in spring, this canyon is made for you! The landscapes are breathtaking from the beginning of the approach walk until the return to the village of Rodellar where a visit to the bar will be well deserved.

To do this canyon, I ask you to have done at least one other canyon with me, in order to know you and to validate that you have a sufficient sport level for the superior Mascun. This is so that everyone can enjoy this wonderful adventure.
