Hiking Package  “Day 6.”

Day Hike “Liberão - Cruz de Fundura”.

After breakfast you start your hike from the guesthouse towards "Cutelo Montanha". You walk to "Liberão" over "dirt roads" and / or donkey trails to Baragem (dam) of “Poilão”.


This hike goes through the agricultural interior of Santiago and shows you the daily life of the local people.


It takes you 3-4 hours to reach the dam of "Poilão", where you have a wonderful view over the lake.


After lunch you continu the hike via "Joã Teves" walking towards "Nhagar", via "Galeão" back to "Boca Larga" and the guesthouse.


In "Joã Teves" you will find a small regional museum, which can be visited.


Depending on speed and stopping times the total hike takes about 8 hours.

From "Poilão" to "Joã Teves' is an asphalted road. To shorten (abt 1 hour) the hike it is possible to go from "Poilão" to "Joã Teves' by an “aluguer” (bustaxi).


You also have the option to end the hike at the end of the afternoon in "Joã Teves" and go up by “aluguer” (bustaxi) from "Joã Teves" to the Guesthouse in “Boca Larga”. (Depending on the waiting time for the “aluguer” it might shorten the hike with 1.5 hour.)
