We stumbled across this Levada by accident and as a consequence were not prepared. Waterproof boots, and a torch are a must. Having said that we still really enjoyed the walk and with the tree cover the temperature and terrian were comfortable. The wildlife seem...More

We just went until the waterfall which is after the tunnel. Bring a flashlight. We had the flash from our phone which was ok but a flashlight is usefull. The waterfall is quite impressive. The hike is an easy one.

I don't normally do 'walk'. I'm lazy. I did this one, however, up to the tunnel and through, then we turned round. About 15k round trip, I think... Wonderful views, great nature, my wife loved being able to pick passion fruit right from the tree!...More

Wear hiking gear, take a torch & a lekki stick if you usually use one. Really enjoyed this walk and it's worth taking a drive across the sierras for the views above the clouds.
