Prateleiras Peak, Itatiaia
(5/5 based on 110+ 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.
