PNT 31.2 Ramal Degollada del Sombrero de Chasna

PNT-31.2

Teide National Park

Difficulty: High

Description

Spur trail that takes you into El Sombrero de Chasna, a short tongue of lava that forms one of the most distinctive peaks in the south of the island. 

It owes its name to the curious hat-like shape of its rock wall rising up towards the sky. From its summit you can enjoy spectacular views of Mount Teide and Las Cañadas.

Tips

  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves. 
  • Pay special attention when crossing or walking along trails used by bicycles, horses or motor vehicles and when walking in ravines with water courses.
  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs. 
  • Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls. 
  • Check out our guide to hiking in Tenerife and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
