4.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The place is very nice, easy dirt road access. But each person gave us a different information. In the end, we found that there was no restaurant and cafeteria on site and even some people within the US reported that Park had. Tip: bring water and food and try to inform the tracks you want to do with someone who's done it before. And I hope when I get back there more professionals trained and informed.

  • Beautiful place. Heavy walk but that is very worthwhile. It was only me and my husband, we were not. We start the walk at 10 am and we arrived upstairs plus or minus half a day. The path has the House cards km traveled. What left us in doubt was at km 3, but then we stopped to rest, take pictures and follow! The day that we didn't have a lot of Sun, but even so it is very important to spend sunscreen, take water and something to eat upstairs, dazzling that beautiful landscape!
