A) Read the text.
Mount Teide is the highest mountain in Spain, but it’s not on the Spanish mainland. It’s a volcano on Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s 3,718 metres high and has amazing views of the other six islands in the area. If you’re interested in climbing the mountain, you need to know a number of things before you go.
First, the best time of year to climb it is between the months of May and October, because there’s a lot of snow and ice for the rest of the year, which can be dangerous.
Second, if you want to go to the very top, you need a special piece of paper from the national park office, because it’s a protected area. This paper is free, but you won’t be allowed to climb without it, so don’t forget!
Third, be careful with the weather. Remember that on high mountains it’s nearly always much colder at the top than at the bottom, even in the middle of summer. So take a sweater with you!
The climb takes about four hours. But if you get very tired and don’t want to walk all the way back down, you can get on the cable car. You buy a ticket near the mountain café and in eight minutes you’re back at the car park.
