Hiking in Tenerife
« on: April 04, 2017 »

A few years ago while in Tenerife i climbed Mount Teide which is the highest mountain in spain. We were there in January this year again and this time i climbed Montana Guajara which is 2718 meters and looks across the valley at Mount Teide. I wanted to be at the summit for sunrise which meant leaving our apartment at 4am for a 1 hour drive and then a 1hr 45min hike to the top on a route which i didn't know. I'll post a few pics and a video below.

40 mins before sunrise and the sky starts to colour behind me. I start to run!

I'm well above the clouds and the sky takes on more colour

The sun rising behind me lights up Mount Teide across the valley from me

The rising sun behind me lights up Mount Teide and causes a shadow across the Atlantic ocean behind it. Awesome to see.

Nothing beats climbing a mountain on the way home from the club, eh ;)

Absolutely stunning photos there, a pleasure to see.  You must have some contrasting clothes going into that suitcase for a holiday in the the Canary Islands!

Brilliant photos, looks like an awesome trip and well worth the 4am start  8) You'll have deserved a Sangria round the pool after that!

Great photos, that landscape is so unique! I should really try to make a trip down there and explore the volcanoes.
