Chinyero Walks

The Volcan de Chinyero would be the web-site from the previous recorded volcanic eruption on Tenerife. For nine times in November 1909, this vent on the north-west of Mount Teide spewed out lava and ash which flowed down the hillside in direction of Santiago del Teide.

Fortunately, and to some degree abruptly, the lava stream stopped in advance of it achieved the city and still left us with arguably probably the most picturesque landscape in Tenerife. Now a mother nature reserve, the landscape round the Chinyero vent is categorised by volcanic cinder cones and lava flows surrounded by excellent inexperienced pine forests, established versus a backdrop of your impressive Mount Teide.

The excellent landscapes brings together with mild gradients to generate this fertile going for walks nation and you will find numerous routes you'll be able to take a look at which is able to provide you with a 1st hand check out in the Volcan de Chinyero as well as bordering countryside.

The 1st and many apparent is really a round wander that commences with the Chinyero sign-post over the key highway amongst Chio and Teide (TF-38). This wander requires you with a loop throughout the Chinyero crater. The path can be a most dust monitor and is particularly practically solely stage without any substantial gradients to become discovered, creating this an excellent novice stroll.

However, I desire a far more exciting route, commencing while in the close by city of San Jose de Los Llanos and going for walks out together aged farm tracks into the fringe of the lava flows through the Chinyero vent, right before heading inland and thru the forests all-around Montaña del Estrecho. Climbing for the summit of Montaña del Estrecho peak (one,525m) affords you a superb watch with the Chinyero vent, its lava flows not to mention Mount Teide.

Bizarrely, despite the spots exceptional normal natural beauty, neither of those walks element prominently in almost any on the important strolling guides, along with the space is lacking through the preferred Tenerife Mountaineering Map generated by Discovery Strolling Guides. An omission I hope the publishers act promptly to accurate.
