Pico Da Ibituruna, Governador Valadares

(500+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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.

  • I've had many opportunities if up there day and night, it's just beautiful at any time or schedule, if it is in your own car care in time to come down because the brakes heat up much, down running strong geared

  • Without doubt, the most famous tourist spot of the city. The vision is very worthwhile. The sunset is beautiful there!
