Pedestrian Walks through Caramulo Mountain
Bica da Água d’Alta Waterfal – Pedronhe
It is a medium-sized waterfall that is situated on a very steep slope, forming a small lagoon and continuing its course in a small stream. After parking the car next to the sign with the name of the waterfall, in the village of Pedronhe, you will find a narrow dirt road that takes about 15 minutes to walk. It’s worth the walk!
Advice: bring comfortable shoes and keep your attention on the little ones because the stones are slippery in some areas of the waterfall.
