Pico do Arieiro: on an average day 1000 tourists trek it?

“Pico do Arieiro at 1,818 m high (5965 feet), is Madeira island’s third highest peak.[2]

The footpath northwards towards Pico Ruivo is an important tourist attraction, with a daily average of 1000 tourists trekking on it.

There is easy road access to the summit, with a large car park, a restaurant and souvenir shop. In 2011, an Air Defence Radar Station was built at the top of the mountain near the tourist facilities.”
