Thanks to Rui C. Barbosa for adding this peak.
'Nevosa' is the highest point on the Geres Mountains on the north of Portugal (Peneda-Gerês National Park). It's 1534 meters high and to get there you have to make a 13 km track (3 hours). In general is easy to get to Nevosa, but there are no signals to indicate the way. You have to be very carefull because the place is very sensitive. On the way from the Portela do Homem you find a track along the Alto Homem valley. This track was once a road used to get to the old Carris mining field, an abandoned village at the topo of the mountain. From Carris, a unique place on the Peneda-Geres National Park, you can see the fantastic, wonderful and mistic landscaps of the Geres mountains.
