Parque Estadual da Cantereira - Nucleo Pedra Grande, Sao Paulo
(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Located in a conservation area of the same name, Parque Estadual da Cantereira - Nucleo Pedra Grande is a mountain that reaches a peak of 1,418 m (4,652 ft). Its most distinctive feature, and the origin of the name, which means 'Great Stone,' is the large, exposed patches of smooth, bare rock. Because of the ease of access of its gentle slopes, and the large, mostly flat surface area at its peak, many sports and other outdoor activities are practiced here. Try your hand at hang-gliding, paragliding, climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, camping, hiking, tree climbing, motocross, BMX, and ballooning. Those looking for a less strenuous activity can have a go at dousing or crystal therapy (the quartz in the rock is supposed to have therapeutic qualities), stargazing, or you could simple admire the panoramic view and enjoy the quiet, interrupted only by the howler monkeys that inhabit the area.

  • They took the pedal boats, so it's not 5 stars, but it's a park to any kind of audience, couple, family, alone, for a reading, or to dance and shake the chairs, beautiful landscape.

  • Good place to make a good walk, the climb is kind of boring, but when you get on top of the Hill, the view of the city is a "crazy" bonita. Bring a bottle of water and don't forget sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat ...

  • Great ride near SP. Beautiful walk to the rock, more or less 10 Km round-trip. It's worth the climb up to the stone. Take water and a snack if you want to spend more time on the site does not have infrastructure for snacks, only bathrooms that are clean.
