    The peak is quite high in days of blue sky the view is wonderful, the visitor has the option of making a good walk (medium level) or car up until well near the entrance gates, and climb only stairs to get to the top, but the road is well deteriorated due to the disaster that affected the city in 2011 , car no way 1.0 bike with low cylinder capacity not too. the best is if you go up by car is trying to inform yourself first with someone in the region before going, but walking or by car to visit worth

    Trail pretty hard all uphill after comes a staircase which for me was the least of it, I don't recommend going in the winter time because the visibility is low but if you take a good windbreaker, gloves, scarf and a pair of fleece because the cold up there. not recommend for beginners

    The visual is unforgettable, unique and unforgettable. Recommend go only on sunny days and weather tight, because the road until you reach the staircase is of parallelepiped (slide a lot on rainy days) and much vegetation, sometimes having only a passing vehicle, which complicates the journey. Another suggestion is to not ride in a car with 1.0 engine, because the climb is strong. It is possible to drive up to a point, then you have to go on foot, climbing a staircase, but don't be discouraged, since arriving at the top, you will see that it totally holds, the look is amazing.

Where to stay in Nova Friburgo

As a popular tourist hotspot, Nova Friburgo boasts a wide range of boutique, midsize hotels in the city center, mainly clustered within a few blocks of the Bengalas River. These accommodations, just a short walk from the city's main streets, tend to be somewhat upscale, with onsite pools and gardens. Many feature architectural styles reminiscent of Swiss and German mountain chalets. In the hills south of the city, past Point de Saudade, you'll find more nature-oriented options and eco-lodges, which focus on comfort combined with a somewhat rustic feel. Plenty of "pousadas" also dot the area: traditional Brazilian guesthouses offering lower prices in exchange for fewer amenities.
