At 2,791 m (9,157 ft), Agulhas Negras Peak, or Black Needles Peak, is the fifth highest mountain in Brazil, and the highest point in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Although the climb to the very top isn't the easiest of undertakings, the base camp Abrigo Rebouças is the highest point in Brazil that you can reach in a regular car, so you are guaranteed spectacular scenery no matter your fitness. If you do make it to the peak, you will be rewarded with a far-reaching, mountainous vista; lush tropical vegetation, pierced here and there by the spiky rock formations that give the peak its name.
