Wildlife Area Nature / Park
At Itacolomi state park, there are dozens of paths for those who enjoy trekking, while breathing in the fresh air. The Itacolimi peak is the highest point between Ouro Preto and Mariana, from which you will have beautiful views of twelve difference districts down below. It’s recommended to take the bus COOPEROURO, which will stop directly in the front of the entrance, and then start your hike up the 5.5 km (3.5 mi) ascent to the top.

Along the way, you will see springs, various viewpoints, Brazilian fauna, a breathtaking waterfall, and an open lake you can swim in. There is a restaurant you can dine at, but it’s advisable that you bring your own water and snacks for the hike. End your adventurous and active day with a visit to the Tea House.
