The route is the goal!
The end with the waterfall is not very spectacular depending on the season, as the fall can be very thin. But the way is great to see lots of birds.
The Barranco was repeatedly blocked because of rockfall, currently the entrance is limited to 300 people per day

Solid shoes and it costs admission. Helmet is provided. Otherwise quite relaxed tour with stunning rock faces around you. Not recommended after rain because of increased rockfall. Basically a little queasy feeling, since people were already killed by stones. Hence the name.

In the southwest of Tenerife near the city of Adeje is the Barranco del Infierno (Hell's Canyon), which is one of the most spectacular Barrancos of the island and is therefore a popular destination.
Archaeological finds prove that the Guanches lived in this area. Later, the Spanish settlers used the water of the gorge, channeled it and led it to the villages closer to the sea. In addition, they created terraced gardens on the steep slopes in order to use these agricultural.
Today, the unique landscape of the canyon is specifically protected and is now part of the Reserva Natural Especial del Barranco del Infierno Natural Reserve.

Started in January at about 9.30am: good time, since in winter from ~ 11 o'clock a little more people are traveling.
The ~ 300hm, which are partially read in the network, represent the height difference between the entrance and the waterfall.
Due to the up-and-down about 550hm come together - the recommendation to take water, so it makes perfect sense.
Overall, a very nice and not too strenuous tour with great views.
The way is very well developed, which justifies the entrance fee.

The trail starts at about 350 meters above sea level, in Adeje, a place that presents a natural balcony, with beautiful views of the southern landscape of the island. This hike takes about 3 ½ hours in total (round trip) and the distance to be covered is about 6500 meters. The difficulty level is easy to intermediate. It is recommended to wear adequate, non-slip footwear for stony terrain.
