The Valley of Angustias
In recent years, La Palma has become a major trail-running destination, its most famous race being the Transvulcania ultra-marathon. This multitudinous event is classed as one of the hardest mountain-ultramarathons in the world, and attracts literally thousands of participants of all levels. Serious competitors can be seen training almost everywhere on the island throughout the year, including in the Barranco de las Angustias.
Dos Aguas, the meeting of the waters. Heavy rains can increase the volume of water considerably, and this is precisely where you have to cross the torrent, via a series of often unstable, sometimes partly-submerged stepping-stones. Although it might appear a modest amount of water to visitors hailing from wetter parts of the world, for the Canary Islands, so much freshwater on the surface is exceptional, and of immense value. At Dos Aguas, most of the combined flow is diverted through a culvert into sedimentation tanks, and from there, it flows along a covered channel to its final destination at the west coast plantations.
This highly-productive, irrigated farmland was originally planted with sugar-cane, but nowadays bananas are the main crop.

In this part of the island, the abundant water reserves issue from natural springs and man-made galleries located at the foot of the Caldera walls, at approximately 1, metres above sea-level. Consider how much work it has taken to get the vital fluid to where it can be used for agriculture! The final section to the cascade. From Dos Aguas the route to the Cascada de Colores is well sign-posted, or you can simply improvise and follow the streambed, if conditions allow.
However, bear in mind that this is an active watercourse, in which the quantities and distribution of sand, gravel and rocks of all sizes can be drastically modified by winter rainstorms, causing some sections to become unpassable, or virtually unrecognizable afterwards. As I progressed along the streambed, Roque Idafe could be seen towering ahead. Directly below the sacred rock, the crystal-clear Almendro Amargo stream meets the ferruginous waters of the Rivanceras or Limonero ravine.
My visit coincided with a prolonged dry spell, and the flow had been reduced to a couple of meandering rivulets, which I duly followed upstream. This iron-rich water is responsible for the vivid yellow and orangey colours from which the waterfall takes its name. To be fair, the cascada was not looking its scenic best on the day I was there. The sheer depth of the gorge, its feeling of remoteness, and the chaotic, rock-strewn riverbed, create a genuine wilderness experience, despite the fact that civilisation lies just around the corner.

The lake drains into a tributary of the Bicol River which enters the sea near Naga City. The WiFi as per normal on the Island was so weak that's it's not worth even trying. The outside shower wasn't working, but I found the pool too cold this time of year anyway.

Collecting the keys was a bit stressful, as Spanish Owners get some other local guy to come and hand them to you and I didn't have his number before hand.
