Prateleiras Peak, Itatiaia
(5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Prateleiras Peak is a dream for the truly adventurous! This stunning natural wonder reaches 2539 m (8300 ft) in altitude, so it’s not for those scared of heights, but the view is absolutely breathtaking who are determined to reach the top. The initial part of the ascent is quite easy, but towards the end it gets more difficult, requiring ropes and lots of courage. It’s recommended to go with a guide and be very prepared with boots, walking sticks, snacks, and water. Walk above the clouds and take in the 360 degree view.

  • The shelves of Itatiaia and one of the most beautiful mountains of Itatiaia, an Unparalleled beauty. When climbing their sides realize their magnificence. From its Summit you can see beautiful mountain Park acadeia!

  • A walk of 6 hours, with stops for photos, and more images. The dazzle is the end, the shelves. Things of God.

  • The peak of the shelves is one of the most recognizable and sought-after mountains in the Itatiaia National Park. With a trail with a moderate level with about 4.5 km from its base is generally traveled around 2:00/2:30. To access the Summit requires a minimum knowledge of mountaineering and it is recommended to use safety equipment. At the top of your 2,548 metres the visual is awesome of Serra da Mantiqueira and the other mountains of the Park. Definitely a great option of trekking in the Park.
