    Day 5 Teide National Park

    November 17, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    After breakfast we took the car and drove to the Teide National Park, Lachlan joined us for the day. The drive up to the NP was very nice with a beautiful landscape, but up there on about 2000m height (over the clouds and therefore a sunny blue sky) it was absolutely amazing. We parked the car and started hiking up to Pico Viejo. Some hours we climbed up the mountain next to Teide until we realized that we will not make it to its top. The path was too sandy and we have started too late to do all the way up (at least 6 hours). So we stopped at a nice spot to rest and turned to hike down, we found another route down which made it to a round trip. During going down the sunset started and the view was amazing. At the car park there were a lot of people already waiting for the night to do Stargazing (Tenerife is one of the best places in the world to do so, because of the low light pollution in the NP), but we went back to the hostel.Read more
