    Had we ever read the tip of SunnyKay in advance;) With us the way was interrupted because of a small landslide. Would have been feasible but was very scary and therefore a bit dangerous.

    The Westweg is now closed and no longer passable. Only goes the eastern variant with numerous metal steps. Sure, but pretty heavy. Also goes with a bit of fear of heights. Only 1-2 places are queasy. 2 liters of water per nose for round trip and 6-7 hrs.

    During the entire hike, some tunnels were hewn into the mountain simply because the only solution was to continue on the path. They are the shortest way to the other side of the rock massif. Attention: if bad weather prevails and it is really windy, whistling in the tunnel itself a madness passage. Furthermore, you should have a real flashlight, the floor is paved only in this tunnel. In the others he is very uneven. Danger of tripping and bending!

    The path through the tunnel is paved and therefore quite easy to pass. I would still recommend flashlights.

    Coming from the Pico do Arieiro you have two alternatives shortly after the tunnel: the "more comfortable" western variant - the Tunnelweg - runs along the steep west side of the Pico des Torres. However, this route is also often closed because of landslides or construction. Best to inquire before.The "sporty" eastern variant leads over the saddle on the east side of the Pico das Torres.
    A flashlight is not needed for this tunnel - but if you run the West version, a flashlight is highly recommended.

    For this tunnel, I would recommend a flashlight.
