  • HJ we meet the pico Itacolomi, the entry of the order where the registration until the beginning of the trail is an average of 5 km I found the way very nice, even with a good part of the land to be burned. As for the trail, at least I got found it difficult. With piecewise climbs rocks and steep terrain. But as it has enough wind the weather gets nice. Inside the farm there's camping area, Museum and pond where worth paying 10 reais per person (tourist).
