    Effects of cutting force of nature forms and contours in ancient rocks in one of the highest points of the Serra Catarinense and southern Brazil. The Pedra Furada, next to the majestic Tower Cindacta II, radar air traffic control station of the air force, we have a wonderful view of the valleys and canyons with a lot of wind and low temperatures. Controlled access being allowed a visit with permission granted in the city of Urubici. Worth checking out, an unforgettable image.

    Amazing location, surreal landscapes. More than 1800 m high steep path Valley landscapes and winding a road not well maintained and signposted. Don't forget to get authorization in Urubici before going to the site and take an extra shirt, gusty upstairs!

    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!

    A beautiful place to meet, I visit this place to nais of 20 years and do not tire of going there, in 1996 in knee-deep snow picked up there on the Hill of the Church and in 2010 I got a snow where we can't even get to the top of the Hill because there was a lot of snow and ice on the runway. On good days the visual is very worthwhile, the place is beautiful.

    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 Repeat the next morning and entered by the 8:00 in the morning, with ticket withdrawn the day before.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
