Monday: National Park - Alto de Garajonay - El Cedro (Rainforest)
We start our climb at Mirador de Tajaqué which overlooks the Integral Nature Reserve of Benchijigua.
We continue through the national park to the highest point of La Gomera, Alto de Garajonay (1485m).
From here, on a clear day, you can see almost the entire island of La Gomera, the islands of La Palma, El Hierro,
Tenerife and Gran Canaria. We make our way down through the unique evergreen forest of El Cedro, where the laurel,
a relic of the tertiary period, has survived for millions of years. We have short breaks on our way down. The hike ends after
the climb out of the forest where our transport will be waiting for us.
