Tips

  • Mandelkern

    The only climb on the Rosmarin-Levada, a steep staircase lets us go against the current. A strange feeling of climbing up a staircase while the Levada water rushes towards you.

    Mindful and focused you should be on the way upstairs and better not focus on the downpouring Levada water.

    It seems to me that this is the island's most photographed waterfall. But always nice to look at.

    In addition to the water stairs, there is another exposed place that costs a little overcoming. Never mind, it's worth the journey. Dreamscape especially at the end of the way.

    A water staircase is not often, so worth seeing. But in summer it can be dry. See image August 2017. At the end of the route, a magnificent waterfall awaits. Brave people are allowed to cool off a lap.

    At the end of the tour, a waterfall awaits. Brave ones go for a swim at felt zero degrees. Levada is quite small, hence the way. There is a somewhat exposed place without a fuse. Always stay calm and best not to look down.

    It's amazing to see the water rushing down here. In summer temperatures you feel like giving your feet a shower
