In the Teide you can also find the mountain hut Altavista. From there, you can use a cableway which goes up the mountain within a few minutes, from a height of 2,350m, up to La Rambleta at 3,555m. The ascent by foot is forbidden, although you can get a special permission in the offices of the National Park in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
