    Very long absolutely dark tunnel. On the Rabacal Valley side was bright sunshine. On the other side of the tunnel, there were low clouds over the hillside destroyed by the forest fire.

    You should definitely bring a flashlight 🔦, the mobile phone lamp is the absolute minimum.

    This tunnel is worth an experience. Be sure to pack a flashlight. Without light, a fall is inevitable. For all tall people; the headroom is guaranteed. 😀

    Nice shortcut to the "25 Fontes"
    If you do not have much time and want to avoid the descent, start from the parking lot near the tunnel entrance.
    So you can do the tour even in the late afternoon and has a relaxed way back;)

    Nice shortcut to the "25 Fontes" - so this can also reach the afternoon on foot;)

    Flashlight is an advantage, mobile phone does it too! You do not have to be afraid of rats or spiders, not seen an animal

    Instead of using the notorious cavalry tunnel in the direction of Calheta, I decide to return, so wander once more through 'the heart' of the laurel forest. Because the incredible, 800 meter long rider tunnel is only spacious at the beginning. After a few meters, it gets narrow, wet and pitch black, because you can not see the end.

    A levada hike is always recommended. No matter which.

    The tunnel is about 800 meters long and well developed for Levada tunnel conditions. The ground is uneven in some places, be careful when walking. You really should have a flashlight with you.

    A little tip: you should ALWAYS carry a flashlight with you when hiking in Madeira. There are also extremely long tunnels, where otherwise nothing looks like a single point!
