Serra dos Orgaos National Park, Teresopolis

4.6
Serra dos Orgaos National Park is one of the foremost centers of trekking, mountain climbing and rock climbing in Brazil. Whether you are a novice walker or a seasoned adventurer, the park has something to offer, with extensive trails throughout the region that can take anywhere from a few hours to several days. The park covers a 110 sq km (42 sq mi) area of forested mountains rising from 145 m (476 ft) at its lowest point to 2,263 m (7,425 ft) at its highest. The area is abundant in natural springs and the unusual name--"Organ Mountains"--is believed to have come from early Portuguese settlers who thought that the rocky peaks of the mountain range resembled church organs. The most famous of these formations is the Dedo de Deus (God's Finger) rock, which resembles a left hand pointing towards the sky. It is 1,692 m (5,551 ft) high and can be seen in the background of the flag of the Rio de Janeiro state.

  • I'm from the river and found it a bit strange to have to pay to enter and to park at the Park, as this is not necessary in the Tijuca forest. Ends up being a walk a bit expensive for a family with children. I took a local informational role and did some hiking trails. The place is very nice and pleasant. The trail was adjourned with part of it blocked and unable to move forward, which disappointed me a little, mainly because nobody told this at the entrance. Recommend because the contact with nature there is excellent.

  • Delicious contact with nature. The Park is beautiful and offers many options such as swimming pools, waterfalls, trails of different levels, camping and picnicking areas. We can drive to the top of the Park. Have vigilant and toilets at various points.
