Ideal trail for observation of the area’s most typical flora and fauna: shrike and pimelia are abundant here. From the beginning of this hike to the ‘Cañada de los Guancheros’ we will go through mounds formed by banks of pumita (pumice stone) which come largely from the Montaña Blanca eruptions. The ‘Cañada de los Guancheros’ is a sedimentary plain where broom and codeso are joined with the rosalillo, tonic and pajonera grass on the summit.
Along the route you will see wide panoramic views of both the slopes of Tigaiga, the interior of the Caldera and Teide itself.
