  • Me my husband, we climbed the trail of the Bishop's hat, in the mantiqueira Avenue was a way easier. To get oa plato had not any marking, we had to ask for some people who were going camping, we ended up going in 6 people. The track Hey long, getting it there was nothing to indicate that that stone was the peak. Was td very confusing. Worth the experience, adventure, but climbing on the rock I found very difficult. My advice is to go with people who meet the way, because we have heard stories about mtas people lost. Did 5:00 round-trip.

  • On the Mines many clouds that give a visual amazing. I just couldn't find this guest book. I used the wicilok to guide me there at the top of the peak, as it does not have any signs. Exhausting, but if the child is not lazy, go easy. Bring water and snacks. Lucky that most of the road is between trees, providing ample shade.
