  • Not every agency offers the tour with trail. Some agencies leading to the Golden path where there is an alembic and waterfalls. But for me, it makes no sense to pay an agency for a tour that you can do with public transportation by 3 reais. Important to find an agency to do the trail. Look, you have. Are 2 km in the Atlantic forest by a route used to transport goods in Brazil. The original track was going to Minas Gerais, but fell into disuse with the construction of railroads and highways. Over time the Woods covered the path and this stretch was discovered and revived recently. Important go to sneakers, pants and hat. It is possible to track and return to the city in a morning. Maaas, as I said, there is a still and waterfalls nearby. So who can stay all day.

  • Beautiful ride that should be done with caution, even restored the road has dangerous stretches.

  • As we had wedge-SP activity spent several times for Sierra. She is really stunning. The first stretch is bad, but it gets better and really worth it. The visual is divine, the feeling of contact with nature is priceless.
