#1 of 6 in Things to do in Governador Valadares
Pico Da Ibituruna is a beautiful peak that stands over the city of Governador Valadares and it means “black stone” in Indian. Known as the "World Free Flight Platform" or the "World Hang Gliding Platform", the mountain is the main tourist attraction in Governador Valadares. With an altitude of 1,123 meters (about 3,684 feet) above sea level and 990 meters (about 3,248 feet) above the level of the Rio Doce, it has established itself as the perfect national and international scenery for the practice of hang gliding and paragliding (free flight).

It’s a gorgeous drive up a cobblestone road, taking about 30 minutes to reach the top. The view is breathtaking and small kiosks provide drinks and snacks. For a more substantial meal, you can stop at one of the many restaurants along the way. There are plenty of waterfalls around and many cottages for rent. Watch others in free flight or be adventurous and try paragliding yourself.

  • The peak of the Ibituruna's postcard from Governador Valadares. Is a magical place, where nature is well preserved by a place extremely quiet and pleasant, with a breathtaking view, recommend a visit. In the city, 2 x a day, there's a bus that takes and brings very affordable price. If come up with own vehicle, I recommend the climb the road pavement, which goes to the top of the ramp, take more or less half an hour. If you want to, you can perform dual flight also paragliding, is very worthwhile. Governador Valadares is one of the places with the most favorable weather conditions for the free flight, I recommend!
