Geocache Description:


O maciço das sombrosas situam-se a 1300 m de altitude num maciço granitico situado por cima da mini albufeira de Porto da Laje e talvez seja a parte mais alpina da serra do Gerês.

Para quem gosta do Gerês, o Trilho da Vezeira passando pelas Sombrosas é um marco incontornável.

O vale das Sombrosas é realmente a cereja no topo do bolo desta caminhada. O Rio do Touça com os seus maciços graníticos e quedas de água é espectacular. As Sombrosas impressionam com a sua imponência e elegância. Fantástico.

Um percurso espectacular.

Os declives muito acentuados tornam-no desaconselhável se não estiveram reunidas todas as condições.



The massif of shady are located at 1300 m altitude in a granitic massif situated above the mini Bayou Porto da Laje and perhaps the most alpine saw Gerês.

For those who like the Geres, the Trail is shady Vezeira going through a watershed too.

The valley of shady is really the icing on the cake of this journey. The River Touça with its massive granite and waterfalls are spectacular. The shady impress with its grandeur and elegance. Fantastic.

A spectacular route.

The steep slopes make it inadvisable if not all conditions were met.
