The lakes were utterly still and the trees reflections in the mirrored water were beautiful - the moss growing around the sides of the lakes were the most amazing luminous green ! loved it

We stopped here on our tour and walked the short path to the waters edge. It was a picturesque vista that we really enjoyed.

We did the 4.9 km Serra Devassa hike (PRC05SMI) to see the crater lakes around and including Lagoa Empadadas. The hike had a few climbs but less than 100 meters - and had spectacular views. Lagoa Empadadas was near the end of the hike- a manicured park with lots of colorful flowers housing the crater lakes. We went from "wild" crater lake, to "genteel" crater lake. Altogether an interesting hike.

Been here on the way to Sete Cidades. It was in the morning around 9am. The atmosphere was eerie the lake was surrounded by a thick fog. Good for a few picture.

We were totally surprised by how lovely this area is! We parked outside the gate, along the road and walked to the lakes along a gravel road (only about 10 min to the lakes) and arrived at the lakes with no one else there, it was magical. Quiet, lots of bird song and lush vegetation. We walked up to the mirador (another 10 min) which gave a great view. Some people do decide to drive but I think it is a shame to spoil the area with cars.
