Sierra La Giganta (La Giganta Range)

Loreto

Along with Sierra Guadalupe, Sierra La Giganta Biosphere Reserve represents the least explored territory in Baja California Sur. It is a mountain range almost 365 kilometers long and one million 500 thousand hectares of volcanic landscapes, rich in wildlife. Only the most adventurous souls dare to enter it.

If you are one of them, you will find an oasis where the weemsi bighorn sheep (endemic to Sierra Giganta and in danger of extinction), the peregrine falcon, the golden eagle, the desert squirrel and cacti and giant palms that grow in deep canyons, bathed by waterfalls.

Here are also the caves inhabited by the Guaycura, the first settlers of the region. Part of their heritage was reflected in petroglyphs and cave paintings, which can be seen inside caves and rocks. You can explore them on foot or on the back of a mule.

It may surprise you that there are ranches where the Guaycura language is still preserved, a dialect with a 300-year-old table. There are even expeditions that allow you to camp to live with the communities.

The Tabor Canyon is a natural wonder that was formed within the Sierra La Giganta. It is treasured for its natural pools for swimming and its steep walls for climbing and abseiling. From the higher parts you can admire the vastness of the Sea of Cortés.
