The floor of the tunnel most often meets tunnel may be slippery and the rocks of the ceiling show unevenness in some parts of the tunnel. Also sometimes there are some waterfalls. It is advisable to use waterproof, head protection and a flashlight.
As the landscapes emerge, dazzle the endemic flora and fauna as well.
At the end of the route there is the high point of the Ribeira da Janela. A unique sight where the great rocks stand out that complete the landscape with a pleasant gray tone. Take time to take a break and get some rest. Make a snack to restore energy. You also have the option of diving in one of the lagoons present.
