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.

Where to stay in Teresopolis

Because one of the mains draws of Teresopolis is nature, it seems fitting that eco-friendly accommodation options are the norm here. The natural environment is highly valued and respected by the range of hotels and inns, which have been designed to integrate with nature. Look for cozy hotels tucked into the maze of city streets in the center, or base yourself closer to the national park if getting to the top of one of the mountains tops your list.
