nice to do this beautiful levada!

December 5, 2021

Beautiful rain forest

Very green levada walk with waterfalls. Looks a bit like 25 fontes Rabaçal, but less busy and more green. There are some smaller parts, which are not dangerous as long as you focus on where you put your feet. Time enough to make pictures in between.

It was nice to do this beautiful levada with a tour guide. I was traveling alone and did not want to do it on my own. The tour guide and the driver were extremely friendly and the guide explained things about the vegetation along the way.
