  • 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.

  • One of the most beautiful state parks in Minas Gerais. Many activities can be practiced: hiking, biking, mountain climbing, observation of nature.

  • Park is a good way to get in touch with nature
  • Show!
  • Beautiful Park with amazing hikes.
  • Very nice to spend the day in the Park. The structure of barbecues and living area are good. Too bad the Zipline was under maintenance, because it was something I wanted to try. I have visited the House of the Girl Scouts, which tells the history of the place. It's very nice to be surrounded by so much green and even having visited the Park twice, hasn't met half that's attractions. For sure I will come back to try something like camping for the weekend.

  • Well worth the walk and on the back where you let the car has a pond to freshen up the walk. NOTE: to login you need the vaccine card to prove that vaccinated against yellow fever. Last time I went they were charging $20 to get in, as I was intending only to take a leap into the pond or was encouraged to pay to enter. The first time I was the one who lived in the region did not need pay, which was my case.
