Mount Pico, Madalena Reviews
Went with a guide after midnight, for the sunrise. Really amazing.
One of the best experiences in my life. A usual +3 hour hike up the mountain and about +2 hours coming down. The best way to get the full experience is to spend the night up top and wake up for the beautiful sunrise, it's breath taking. All I brought was a sleeping bag but a tent would work better. It gets cold up there so bring some warm clothes. Bring about 3 liters of water and some snacks. No bathroom up there. It's like camping.
Well, what to write about a mountain. It’s mostly lava rock and is not slippery at all when dry. I climbed up in Keen sandals and had no problems. We got very good luck regarding the weather, sunny all the way up and down. In those conditions, it is not a hard hike. I guess it can get much nastier when not the case, clouds and fog, you can easily lose your direction.
The climb starts at Casa da Montanha, situated at roughly 1200m, where you are given a gps device and some safety instructions. The climb took us 3h to the crater of pico and then 30m more to the piquinho. The views on the top are good but keep in mind this is a very hard climb. One of our team members didnt make it to the top... In our attempt we were extreamly lucky with the weather and i think that, in low visibility conditions, some tricky situations can occur. We managed to come down in about 2h20m. The decent is clearly the hardest part and it is easy to have an accident due to the irregular lava trails. My advice: just attempt the climb in super nice clear days. Do it if you are fit, you are part of a team (of fit people) and prepared for this adventure (water, sun screen, food, boots). Costs 12€.
Baa amazing mountain!
