Prateleiras Peak, Itatiaia

(110+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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 access trail to the peak of shelves is easy to access, but that does not have the habit of walking and hiking can have a bit of trouble with the stones. But should make the track, since, well worth the vista and the energy of peace that the place has.
