Hiking to Puente Nueva on La Palma

Today was a wonderful day for hiking up at Roque de Los Muchachos. The passat clouds reach a maximum height of about 1800m. Today was a good day to observe this phenomenon. My starting point today was a small parking place at 28°45’40.0″N 17°52’02.7″W. There is not so much space and parking here felt a little strange 🙂 From here a small path leads to Puente Nueva which is smaller summit near Roque de Los Muchachos. It takes just about 30 minutes from the parking place to the summit which is directly located beside the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) and the Jacobus Kapteyn Telescope (JKT). Still you should be sure-footed when taking the path. The path offers a great view into the caldera and across the island. Last updated: December 27, 2015 at 18:52 pm
