  • Top.
  • Highest point of the RS, with access by Cedar Valley, passing by Bom Jesus and following towards São José dos Ausentes. After the city centre, it is necessary to traverse 35 Km of dirt road. The path requires a lot of car suspension (should be). The route is done at low speed because there's a lot of rocks. But pays off! Near the Canyon Montenegro there are several farms, 4, 3 or even 1 km from the edge of the Canyon. You can go by car, bicycle, on foot or on horseback (the farms offer tours with guides). Get ready to be in the clouds. The peak is the 1490m of altitude relative to sea level. It's wonderful to look East, view the mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. And remember: Take only pictures, leave only your footprints, take home only memories ". Preserve nature.
