Dolly Diver !!!! HALLELUJAH !!!! well said !
I used to work in a busy reception, and each time people would ask about the Masca walk, I would correct them and say "HIKE" !!!
I had first hand experience a couple of years ago, it was a nightmare.
We had a young group and so the tour guide from a group called Vent d oest. Decided we would break the record !!! we made it down the ravine in 2 hours 40 minutes. I lost my two big toe nails, there was blood everywhere when I got my trainers off. Doctor Fernando had to treat me, so I didnt get sceptic.
I always advise people that there is rocky terrain, shingle which makes you slide and theres a bit of rock climbing at various points !!
Hiking boots are a must, the ankle piece stops your toes going forward when going down the rocks.
I was once admonished by my manager for talking a couple of pensioners out of the walk !!! cos we lost the commission ! big deal ! Id rather see these people forewarned, than visit them or mislead them.
