Con un altor de 3.719 m sobre'l nivel de la mar y con aproximadamente unos 7.000 m sobre'l llechu marín axacente, ye'l puntu más altu d'España, el monte más altu de toles islles atlántiques ya'l tercer mayor volcán de la Tierra. El Teide ye un estratu-volcán del tipu estrombolianu.

Dau el so historial eruptivu ya'l so allugamientu averáu a centros poblaos, el volcán foi designáu como unu de los 16 Volcanes de la Década pol so gran valir pal estudiu del amenorgamientu de futuros desastres naturales. Alcuéntrase'n reposu, cola cabera erupción documentada l'añu 1909 pel bufón secundariu de Chinyero, na paré oeste del Teide. Otres erupciones destacaes van asoceder los años 1704–1706 y 1798. La cima tien delles pequeñes y actives fumaroles qu'emiten dióxidu d'azufre caliente, al igual qu'otros gases. Existe una probabilidá media-alta de futures erupciones, incluyendo'l riesgu de dalguna altamente peligrosa de tipu piroclásticu como les del Mont Pelée ya'l Vesuviu. El nome Teide ye una evolución castellana del nome orixinal Guanche «Echeyde», anterior a la colonización castellana. Echeyde, nes lleendes Guanches, yera'l nome dau al so infiernu, onde vivía una poderosa figura (Guayota) una mena de guardia de la puerta d'aquel inframundu.

Na prehistoria, fai unos 180.000 años, un volcán inda más grande que'l Teide careció d'una esplosión xigantesca d'índiz d'explosividá volcánica 7, que frañó'l picu dexándolu llegar a la mar pel norte de la islla, creando asina les llamaes Cañadas del Teide, una gran caldera volcánica xusto perriba de los 2.500 m d'altor, con 15 km d'estensión d'este a oeste y 10 km d'estensión de norte a sur. Al costáu sur, los muros internos del cráter formen un precipiciu que va de los 2.715 m a los 2.100 m en Guajara. La propia cima del Teide ya'l bufón secundariu llamáu Pico Viejo (3.135 m), los dos na fastera norte de la caldera, deriven d'erupciones que siguieron a la gran esplosión prehistórica.

El volcán ya los alredores formen el Parque Nacional del Teide, que se consideró Patrimoniu de la Humanidá pola UNESCO. S'accede per una carretera pública que traviesa la caldera de nordeste a suroeste. Desde esta carretera sal un teleféricu a unos 2.356 m y llega casi a la cima (3.555 m). L'accesu a la cima ta torgáu, y fai falta un permisu p'ascender los últimos 200 m.

The white, fluffy blanket in the background are made of clouds. Below this point the weather have been super cold & rainy, while in this height we were enjoying the warm sun & gorgeous view.

Wow wow wow! See as much as you can and I propose walking down instead of the bus. There is an awesome trail starting from the back of Las Lajas recreational area. Be read for some trekking though.

Going to the very top is really a must! Make sure you get a special permission in advance via internet. When there are no clouds you can see all Canary Islands from the top! Also dress warm :)

It was so fun driving on a single road with no other cars coming opposite or behind us. Great feeling to be alone surrounded by this amazing scenery
