The hike around the ash cone of the Chinyero is impressive in many ways, not least of course the rugged and repellent lava flows, which give the impression of having fiercely flowed down the mountain yesterday. Nevertheless, the forest of the "Corona forrestal" stands on its edge and in places the plants regain the formerly sterile areas and you can find flowering plants in the middle of the lava fields.

An easy hike around the youngest volcanic cone in Tenerife. Partly through the Corona Forrestal, partly over ash fields and the lava flow that rolled towards Santiago del Teide.
Unbelievably impressive landscape and wonderful views. Definitely think about sun protection, the route is very sunny and thanks to the height, the UV radiation is again much more violent than at sea.
