Our journey commences with a descent into the awe-inspiring Great Barranco, a vast ravine that serves as a gateway to the wonders that lie ahead.

Our journey takes us across desolate scree slopes, where the stark beauty of the landscape unfolds around us, devoid of vegetation, presenting a stark contrast to the lushness of the lower altitudes.
