Long Description:
Roque Nublo (Spanish meaning the "Clouded Rock") is a monolith feature that is 80 m tall. It is one of the most famous landmarks on the island of Gran Canaria. The elevation is 1,813 m, ranking it second on the island and one of the tallest in the archipelago. It is municipally located in Tejeda, a few kilometres from the town centre. It was formed by a volcanic eruption around 4.5 million years ago. It can be reached very easily by hiking some 30 minutes from a nearby parking lot. Thus, especially in summer, you'll encounter quite a lot of tourists up there. Views from Roque Nublo are Mount Teide on Tenerife, the 3rd largest volcano in the world and the highest point in Spain, El Fraile, a rock formation resembling a monk and Pico de la nieves, the highest point on the island. Transport to Roque Nublo can be the Las Palmas bus, a rented car, helicopter tour and other modes of transport.
