Today was the well-known top tour through the laurel forest.But for me it is not one of the highlights of the island. There is something nicer.From the information booth it goes up the Barranco.The first 1.1 kilometers it is a tar road, then it flows into a stony path for 1.5 km, before it flows into the really great and interesting Cubo de la Galga from kilometer 2.6.This is a narrow path that winds through an aquaduct, rocks and huge ferns (up to 3 meters high). Part of the path is guarded along the edge of the deep, partly only 2-3 meters wide gorge.Unfortunately, this premium part is over after about one kilometer. Now comes another wide forest path, which approaches the mirador with a view of the sea at the same height.The Mirador is so oversized that it makes you dizzy, how manyEU funds were wasted here.Similar to the 400 meter long quay wall and the expansion of the port in the amount of 35 million for the mooring of cruise ships.OilNot even 10 have invested in the 20 years 😂😱😂Now there is another Komoot highlight, the ravine and an ascending cross path, which joins the way there just behind the beautiful aqueduct. Then it goes the 2.6 km the entry way back to the parking lot.
So that it wasn't the highlight for you, you took a lot of photos and meters in altitude 🤔😉 I'm not quite through with looking, my network is paralyzing ...
Apart from the unattractive access routes: I also like the green face of La Palma. The laurel forests on the Canary Islands are special, La Gomera is a real rainforest, you feel like you are in the jungle.
