Inside the Caldera de Taburiente National Park – Los Brecitos

Today Carsten went to Santa Cruz and from there to Roque de los Muchachos and back. But I didn't want to sit in the car for so many hours, so I decided to go cycling again. I went to Los Llanos and from there up to Barros. There starts the road that goes down to the car park inside the caldera. For about three kilometres I biked down in many turns... slowly.. because three years ago I had a crash there.. There were some cars at the car park. It is the starting point for a walk inside the caldera to the coloured waterfall and the camping site. But I cycled upwards, for about 15 kilometres, until I reach the mirador Los Brecitos. Here the view is again very beautiful with a mix of clouds and sunshine. I met another biker and we stayed at a nice place above the car park for some time. From there I saw Los Llanos and Todoque where it was raining! When I cycled back down to the car bike there was a perfect rainbow inside the caldera. It looked so beautiful I had to stop several times! 🙂 Back at the car park I had to cycle up again three kilometres before being back in Los Llanos, that was really hard after the long break, but still this way was worth every kilometre 🙂
