Pedra da Macela, Cunha
(4.8/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Get off the road and after some 5 km of unpaved road you arrive at the location of the car. After appearing in it are 2 k of climb, but I think it's much more. And it's rising! The day seemed to be good for the rise and see the sights, but we realize that the fog lowered and we couldn't see anything at all. They said earlier you could see, that close to the lunch break (hours that we were) is the worst. The ascent is terrible and the descent just isn't as tiring, but leg pain remains during the week. I think I'm never going back, I have no fitness for it.

  • For those who like to walk along the nature well worth the visit. From there, one can see the sea, the town of Paraty, boats etc. Very nice ride

  • Located on the border of the States of Rio de Janeiro-Paraty-Cunha and SP. the 1,850 m high, on a clear day there is a beautiful view of the Bay of Angra dos Reis and Paraty. Worth the program in that camp, spending the night. For those who enjoy hiking.
