Top of The World (Well La Palma Anyway!)

We didn’t get to the explore the Caldera de Taburiente National Park very much unfortunately.  It was a little tricky without a car, and we were kinda tired by that point of the holiday.  But we were up there when we visited one of the observatories on the top and stopped off at the Roque de Los Muchachos which is 2,426m above sea level and the highest point on the island.  For reference, the highest point in the UK is Ben Nevis at 1344m.

Roque de los muchachosIt was a beautiful day but the Caldera (the 8km wide crater once thought to be the volcano crater but was actually caused by erosion) was full of clouds and we couldn’t see the any of the island below.  Still I thought the clouds were very beautiful.
