The amazing photo is from a hike on Madeira island off Africa, an autonomous region of Portugal. (Likely you’ve heard of Madeira wine.)

Hikers go there to walk the ancient “levadas” (irrigation channels) that provide over 2172km (1350mi) of trails on the tiny island.

Two of the most popular walks are the “Levada do Caldeiro Verde” and the “Levada Caldeirão do Inferno”.

The photo is on one of the mountain paths or “veredas” that criss-cross the peaks.
