  • Amazing experience, crossing at night, with rain, too foggy, cold, mto body reaching exhaustion.. Unfortunately I didn't see the Sunrise, but I saw I coming to the top reaching the Summit! Life experience ...

  • with a trail of almost 14 kilometres in your most uphill, the pico da bandeira is to be taken by those who already do some kind of physical exercise, the final part of the climb is the hardest and often have to use the hand in this section recommend taking trail glove the POO my hand was filled with splinter for backing me up on the floor, also recommend taking more than 2 liters of water and food to spend the day on the trail, unlike most people took a lot of heat all the way including at peak.

  • Want to make an unforgettable adventure, full of unique sensations? Then you can't help but go visit the Pico da Bandeira. We did a trail at dawn to catch the Sunrise Sweater, involving blouse second skin fleese jacket, windbreaker jacket, gloves, scarf or balaclava to protect the face and Hat are enough to climb. Don't forget the flashlight and batteries, very important. A backpack, containing bars of cereals, dried fruits, nuts and camelbak with water. Some 5 to 6 hours of ascent, the quiet, because the climb is very steep and, for being in the middle of the night, the cold is intense. Reaching the Peak still half an hour to dawn and, finally, when this happens, the emotion is right! The power of being able to see the sun rise before your eyes, above the clouds have no way to explain, just watching. Sensational!!!!! Worth checking out
