Walking in Malta – A hike along Chadwick lakes

This Sunday, some friends and I went for an afternoon hike along part of the Chadwick lakes, located close to the village of Mtarfa, in Malta. It was a sunny day, and we were all surprised by the amount of water flowing down the streams that fed into the lakes. The latter are actually just a series of man-made reservoirs which overflow into each other, creating the impression of ‘lakes’. Early afternoon the area was rather devoid of people, as as we went upstream, we saaw less and less, until finally we reached the road leading to the tiny village of Bahrija. We walked along this road and back into an area overlooking the lakes called ‘Tal-Qalilija’, where several Phoenician tombs are found.

Three hours of lovely hiking with three friends and a dog.

Such a view from that hilltop. At least that's what I imagine, since we never got there. We leave it for the enxt time...
