An Easy Walk to a Different View of Roques de Garcia

Everyone who visits Teide National Park must have that same shot of Roque Cinchado at Roques de Garcia, the one where the giant, shillelagh shaped rock fronts the peak of El Teide. There’s no doubt it’s an iconic Tenerife image and, let’s be honest, if it was good enough to feature on the old 1000 peseta bank note it’s certainly good enough for the average memory stick. But with just a little effort, you can get yourself a whole different view of the emblematic rock formations, lose the crowds and enjoy a bit of exercise into the bargain.
