The Encumeada walk, is one of theose walks that no serious walker should miss. If we had to choose one mountain walk this would be it. Magnificent views and very little climbing. Spectacular viewpoint overlooking Curral das Freiras (Nuns Valley) and the enchanting green valley of Ribeiro do Poco. This is a rather long walk, more like trekking, but one is really mesmerized by the power of the rugged mountains all around and lush green valleys of Encumeada below. A real beauty.
