Driving from Teguise to Haria

Yesterday, after we left the Teguise market, we drove north up LZ-10 heading toward the town of Haria. Our destination was the Guinate Tropical Park and then El Mirador del Rio. The road wormed its way up through the hills, becoming narrower the further north we went. For a 5 to 7 kilometer stretch the road was just wide enough to qualify as a one lane road. That did not slow down the on coming traffic.

The guard rails, if one calls them that, were about 18″ in height and about 6″ thick. In most places on the other side of the guard rail was a shear drop of 200 to 300 feet. I started to call the road Lanzarote’s death road.
