At km 1.6 there is a detour (on the left if we go in ascending direction) that arrives at the recreational area by a dirt track that is in very good condition.

Route Guide

Once we start from black sands wait 2 km of smooth ascension, passing by the volcano of Trevejo or black sands, once made this first section you reach the circular path of the Chinyero, a route that surrounds the volcano with 5.7 km of length (to be circular can take The way you want)

  During this circular route there are several intersections, all of them very well signposted and without risk of loss of the way. Once the circular route is made, to get to black sands, it is simply necessary to take the same path that we reached this point.

It takes about 40 minutes and the difficulty is high but you can brag to your friends that you have reached the roof of the country to sock punch.

Cave of the Wind

It is located in the Municipal area of Icod de los Vinos, north of the island of Tenerife. The Wind cave is the 5th largest cavity in the world in volcanic terrain, after those of Hawaii (Kazumura Cave with 65 Km. of development and others) but it is the number one in its labyrinthine formation.

The Cave of the wind was originated by the old beaks, volcanic cone located next to the Teide. A volcanic tunnel is a cavity that forms in the interior of lava washes. While the lava flows and when it comes into contact with the air, the surface of the wash is solidified thus creating an insulator and continuing the flow of the lava inside until its emptying thus forming the volcanic tube.

The exploration of the Cave of the Wind was started in 1969 and is in 1994 when the works are made to make part of the cave visitable to the public, still there are still ramifications that have not been able to be explored due to the difficulty and narrowness that present the cavities , the official visit covers about 300 meters of cave to a small opening that leads to the outside and then comes back to where it has come, discovering the lava flows, ramifications and the steepness that is the terrain due to the solidification of the lava.

The cave does not have artificial lighting, so the interior route is made with a helmet with electric light. The Visitable section contains numerous formations and phenomena “drawn” by the lava when advancing and changing its viscosity.
