Ancient Trees in Ambroz Valley II.
The first stage of this tour is in Casas del Monte. From here starts a trek of 10 km (round trip) to the chesnut named "Corbiche" that unfortunately is already dead so old that have been made. The place has fine oaks and chestnut trees and beautiful views over the Ambroz Valley and Granadilla Lands. Then the car will take us through the forest of Hervas ascending through the port of Honduras and we´ll stop at a place known as the Birch of Honduras Port,
a singular place because that is the only site where birches grow in Extremadura. Here we will take a little tour of about 3 km, and back to ride the car to crown the port. Finally we´ll climb to Valdastillas and thence to the junction with a paved farm track approximately 2.5 Km in Valdastillas. From there we will make a short walk to the waterfall "Caozo". Finally, the car will take us home through Gargüera to delight us with its magnificent meadow of oaks and so enjoy a little bit of the Tiétar Valley. At any time of the day we will have a lunch in the manner of a good "taco extremeño" (a picnic that includes some of the most delicious foods of Extremadura).
