Climb Description

La Garga is a very pleasant climb, rising up from the flatter plains of the Costa Blanca and finishing in the picturesque Vall de Laguar. For the most part it is not particularly challenging; however, the final 3km are tough, with several long sections in excess of 15% gradient.

This is one of several scenic climbs in the area, with open, panoramic views throughout much of the ascent, making it a fine choice to include in a longer circular ride.

La Garga is open throughout the year.




Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in very good condition on this side of the climb, and there is little traffic.




Alternative Routes

La Garga can also be reached from the CV-720 (Castell de Castells to Benigembla road); it is a short and steep climb from this side. The road surface is also not in great condition in places, which makes it awkward to descend on a road bike.
