This walk covers the highlands of Teno until it reaches the sea at a natural beauty spot. The highland of Teno is an area of great natural wealth which harbours many native plant species.

The starting point should be at Teno Alto, accessible by road from El Palmar which is halfway between Masca and Buenavista. From there the road should be followed on foot for a hundred meters as far as the end of the tarmac.

Then straight on for a little more than a kilometre to Jabuche where you turn right at the sign post to “La Cueva”. On reaching this point take the left turn towards “La Manta” where you must turn to the right.

The path goes straight on for another two kilometres crossing the “Finca de los Lindes”, until it reaches another beauty spot looking out over the Punta de Teno with its splendid scenery.

The return journey to Teno Alto is made the same way, the whole route being covered in about three hours.
