The first paid (since private road) minibus runs 9.30 and takes the masses to the starting point at the Forsthaus... we were 9.10 at the parking lot and it was still empty. The way from Parkülatz can also be well run down as high with appropriate condition. In the afternoon there were felt more than 50 cars and minibuses in the parking lot. Very crowded. As an alternative to the Risco waterfall, we recommend the marked path to the Lagao do Vento on the way back from the forest house. At the forest house we took the path on the left and came back to the right (probably more committed). At the forest house you can eat delicious shark-made cakes and savoury pastries/quiche and have a good coffee or a beer.
Love the walk. Walking down from the parking seems to take forever, but the hike to the falls was worth it. Interesting scenery. Do start early because the place is crowded after 10 am. more »
Really beautiful natural scene. So as it is on the pictures, so it is in real! Also the hike to it is amazing! Absolute recommending!
Not been to anywhere quite like this place before with so many springs coming out of the rocks. Bit of a climb and lots of people but worth the effort.
