Santo Antão mountains

Many people think Cape Verde is a group of flat desert islands, because they have visited Boa Vista or Sal. However, venturing a bit further west and they will find mountains, green woods and forests. This picture was taken in the mountains of Santo Antão, the most westerly of the islands. Here visitors will find lovely mountain scenery, twisty mountain roads and lush green valleys. It is a great island for hiking and experienced local guides are available to lead walks.
