Pico Dos Marins, Piquete

4.9
Pico dos Marins is a mountain peak in Brazil, between the cities of Piquete and Cruzeiro, state of São Paulo. The peak stands only about 1km south of the Minas Gerais state border, but it is located entirely in São Paulo territory. It is part of a short spur of the southwestern section of the Mantiqueira Mountains, and it has an elevation of.False state highest pointFor many years, Pico dos Marins was incorrectly considered to be the highest point in the state of São Paulo. This information could be found in many official publications and schoolbooks. Later it was found that several peaks of the more easterly Serra Fina sub-range of the Mantiqueira Mountains were much higher. Serra Fina's highest summit, Pedra da Mina, on the Minas Gerais border, is now acknowledged to be the state's true highest point, at 2798m. Pico dos Três Estados ("Three-State Peak"), at the border tripoint of São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro states, is also much higher at 2665m.Pico dos Marins is still often erroneously mentioned as being the highest mountain entirely within the state of São Paulo (i.e., not shared with Minas Gerais or Rio de Janeiro), but at least two Serra Fina mountains are both higher and located wholly within São Paulo: Pico da Cabeça de Touro, southwest of Pico dos Três Estados and the probable true holder of the title, at exactly 2600m, and Morro do Tartarugão, just southwest of Pedra da Mina, at 2595m. The Serra Fina range is still poorly surveyed, and other higher peaks may yet be found.

  • Is a beautiful, hard-to-reach mountain, if you do not have fitness don't go. Do not venture out without a guide, is dangerous and has many false trails. The sacrifice is rewarded by the unique and indescribable. Come back whenever I could.

  • Spectacular location, a beautiful sunset and the rising sun is a show, a well drawn-hike "up, shoes non-slip walking itself.

  • Did the hits back in the day on October 14. Were 4:20 up, 3:40 to go down. The descent is quite tiresome, because already be tired of the climb, all the time, much-hike "up. Take plenty of water, took 2.5 liters in back and sold out ... go to gloves, helps in climbing.

  • Place is fantastic. Demand fitness up and down without difficulty. There is also some technical points that are dangerous it needs more attention. Beware of days closed, mist or rain, hindering visibility of the road markings or totems.
