Trekking from Migra il-Ferha to beneath Rdum ta’ I-Ihfar
In this photo blog I’m going to take you on a wonderful cliff trek from Migra il-Ferha (easily accessible by car) to right beneath Rdum ta’ I-lhfar.
I don’t remember winter when we had so much rain. But if it rains the countryside is green and gorgeous. Just the way I like it. Summers are long, hot and dry and I personally cannot wait for winter to come. Nature just recovers from the rain less months and comes to life and I feel I do too.
Migra il-Ferha is a good starting point for number of adventures. You can go and check out the Migra il-Ferha ravine, you can wall all the way to Blata tal Melh or walk towards the Ras id-Dawwara, which we will do today.
Drive to the Migra il-Ferha car park and then start walking towards Ras id-Dawwara.
This is an easy trek that everyone can do. There will be just one point where it will be very much on the cliff edge, but rather than that it’s pretty comfortable.
The scenery of this area is absolutely gorgeous. The terraced terrain reminds me of the famous rice fields in Bali.
The cliffs and sea views are exactly what you need after a busy week in the office. To escape that hustle and bustle of a loud town to peaceful nature.
Few years ago I came cycling here. It seems, looking at the path, there some individuals come here on off road motorbikes, but I didn’t see any when I visited. I trekked with my friend David, as it’s always better to go in twos (or more) to watch out for each other.
It’s easy trek and almost impossible to get lost, just follow the path and stick to the coast. However there seem to be another path going inland, but I didn’t explore this part. Something to check out next time I’m here.
One day I will have a small boat and explore all these caves that I see during my treks. It has to be an adventure on its own to be able go inside and explore it.
This was our turning point this time. The path somewhat disappeared and it started too be too much on the edge cliff so we decided to turn back. Here is a link of this exact place.
We had quite dramatic clouds creations on that day, but we managed to get back dry.
Here you can see the Migra il-Ferha car park where you can leave your car and start trekking. It is also a popular place to watch sunset if you didn’t know.
Below I marked the beginning of the trek, the Migra il-Ferha car park.
And this is the end of this trek. When you explore GoogleMaps you can see that there are other paths that one can take to explore the area so you don’t have to follow me exactly. 🙂
