Macizo de Anaga

Difficulty: Medium


This route starts in the area known as Las Escaleras and offers fantastic views of Roque de Taborno as you begin.

The path continues to the right, taking you directly to Las Carboneras. From there, follow the road and then climb some steps that will take you parallel to the road around the base of Roque de Tenejía.

Follow the road again until you reach the picturesque village of Chinamada with its cave houses.


  • 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.
