The Tenegüime ravine, said the law protected landscape of Natural de Canarias in 1994, is one of the most mysterious spots on the island. His character serves a picture of stark contrasts where the dry environment of different hosts based natural habitats such as cliffs and numerous plant species as verodes the tabaibas and, among others, the lavenders. Instant from the majestic summit highlights the colorful richness that melts into a incla fy color mix: ocher, green palms and agaves, the pink flowers of verodes, stones of that soft green lichens oregano…
Before the fall of the cliff we must realize that the first time as a way becomes highly difficult task and if we are confident we can suffer a dangerous slip. We recommend the safe passage by looking good where we stand, keep the cameras in the pack and make the stops necessary for standing or sitting on a rock contemplating the dramatic force of this area. A few hundred meters to the left of the wind farm in the Valleys , Looking at the bottom of the ravine and the sea, find a set of semi-abandoned-looking houses. From this point begins the trail along the right side of the ravine, it can introduce us, but extreme caution.
The course of this space offers a vision of the effect of water erosion on the oldest geological portion of the island.

This part of the trail is much easier. However, the proximity of the gorge and the inherent invitation to be on the edge should lead us to keep the focus where we stand.
