  • The ascent and descent until the peak led 3, 5:00 considering a half an hour between the pillows and contemplation. The trail is well beaten, has some rocks with arrows and painted signs along the way, I think it's hard for anyone to get lost. The last part was slippery and is very steep. The view is awesome! The tea house and bandeirista are more interesting information of the time. Don't go drive down because the output of the Park is quite rugged.
