Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    As if the landscape weren't extraordinary enough: On the slopes of the Montaña Blanca there are countless egg-shaped, black rocks - the Teide eggs. They originated during the eruption of the huge volcano. At that time, the boulders probably came loose from the lava flows and rolled, still glowing, down the slope. The still warm and soft chunks were formed into the eggs to be admired.

    Gigantic balls. Look like Dino eggs

    Large "marbles" (probably of lava) on the slope of the Teide

    An alternatively discussed theory states that the lava balls are so-called volcanic bombs. A volcanic bomb is a ballistic ejected pyroclastic during a volcanic eruption.
    The nature of the location and distribution of the eggs on Teide rather does not support this theory.

    Los Huevos del Teide
    It is probable that these rocks have come loose from a lava flow and have rolled down the slope for a while

    Cool rock formations and a nice walk up to the Altavista refuge on the way up to Mt Teide.
