  • After the rise of the road of the Serra do Rio do Rastro, has a stop in this sensational Lookout, with a beautiful view of the valley below, where we can observe the towns of Lauro Müller, Orleans and shark. At any time of the year is good to go warm, because the wind is always cold, over 1400 m altitude. Worth the trip! Oh, and there's a lot of coatis in place, always in search of food, just please do not feed them with fruit, industrialised stuff.

  • Beautiful view afforded from the mirante da Serra. It's worth the climb. Only the location does not offer a clean bathroom. Lachonetes and craft shops can be visited there.

  • You don't have to go through all the saw to make the best of this region. The Observatory has the best view of the mountain and is right at the beginning.
