  • Breathtaking view to the Pedra Furada. Have to get tickets at the ICMBio (behind the Bank of Brazil). Bounds of places to visit. I went up at the end of the day I arrived. As mentioned in the enconteei a wall of fog ICMBio and didn't see anything. Repeat the next morning and entered by the 8:00 in the morning, with ticket withdrawn the day before. It was worth it. No crowd as the day before. I was alone and gave to enjoy easy views

  • Beautiful place, both in summer and in winter, where you can hopefully see snow. To go to the site it is necessary to get permission in the town of Urubici. Address: AV. Pedro B Warmeling, 116, Urubici-SC or put ICMBio Urubici on google maps ... Good ride!

  • The site has an incredible view, the complicated is to go to the city to get permission of the climb, and has a certain time to be, but it's worth it.
