Observe a menagerie of monkeys (howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, and marmosets), as well as a number of birds, such as eagles and parrots, native only to this area.

  • Mandatory stop point for who's going to go down or up the Serra do Rio do Rastro. Offers one of the best views of the mountain. For being a place with a lot of incidence of fog, you may not be lucky enough to show the whole chainsaw.

  • A SideShow of nature which we toasted the visit with the formation of the sawmill or trick! We left our route back home just to know the Serra do Rio do Rastro and view more view the canyons of the region. Thanks for all the extra Km times ... unforgettable experience!
