Pedra da Macela, Cunha

(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
At 1840 meters (over 6,000 ft) above sea level, you will find Pedra da Macela, bordering the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The 360-degree panoramic views of the Cunha region will take your breath away … if the hike up doesn’t, that is. You can drive up the dirt road to the gate where you will leave your car, and then walk about 2 km (1.25 mi) up the paved road to the top. The spectacular views of the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other are well worth your effort. There is no infrastructure so bring water, sunscreen, maybe some snacks, and definitely your walking shoes. Use our Cunha trip generator to arrange your visit to Pedra da Macela and other attractions in Cunha.

  • For lovers of hiking and spectacular views, can't miss that view. But prepare the legs because the climb is pulled, are 2 km without a truce that has the reward of Parati and Angra. The day we went we've only seen Cove, due to cloudiness, but worth the wait a bit up there because the wind often carries the clouds and opens the Canary.

  • I went up with my friends at night in stone of Achyrocline Satureioides, because we wanted to see the sunrise. The dirt road until the track is not good, with rocks and holes. The trail itself is steep, but is made by a road and in the middle of the jungle, which makes it easy to climb. I advise to have fitness and go tennis! We camped there (wild) and has a good amount of space. We were with a few tents and 7 had some mounted. The sky was open and we were able to enjoy quite the view. Did a little cold at night, but during the day was already hot. Take water and snacks! There's only one place to get a drink of water and is at the beginning of the trail.

  • Fantastic location, wonderful view you can see the cities of Paraty and part of Angra. For those who will visit is good get there early because the clouds that cover fast when we went the 1:00 pm I couldn't see anything else. The Paraty-Cunha road is excellent, the Earth is more or less, take plenty of water, light and protective clothes because they are 40 min of climb without trees.
