Hiking to Roque Palmero

From Puntagorda we drove by car up to the end of a very very steep small road (28.748399, -17.908844). There we park the car and start walking up to the top of the caldera. On the way to this place we saw the beautiful plant Echium Wildpretii on the roadside several times! This plant only lives on Tenerife and La Palma! At the end of the road we reach a point called 'Degollada de Las Palomas'. From here we have a spectacular view in the caldera! Only 20 minutes away is Roque Palmero, a summit 2306 metres high. From Roque Palmero you can see the whole landscape of La Palma! The view is perfect and the sky is completely blue. We also see Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro. The hiking path goes in both directions and it is definitely worth walking it for a while.
