  • This visit has people flow control, for both need to go on tourist central Urubici, where I stayed and get the license with the options to go in the morning or the afternoon. I got up in the morning and without a hurry I arrived by 11 hours 40 minutes waiting for some because it had some 15 cars in front of me, because only enters a car once you leave each other and are very strict and with reason. I have to thank God for a cloudy day despite being the middle of February, up, up and up and come across a lot of fog, but here comes the miracle time opened and managed to see one of the most beautiful panoramic views I've ever seen, besides pedra furada which follows a click. I had the privilege to admire all the beauty for a 8 minutes and the fog has engulfed again but it was worth it.

  • To see the pedra furada needs to go up the Hill of the Church! Remember that you need permission to climb (just inform the SESC go). Road in good condition.

  • Despite making the visit in February it was windy and freezing at the top of the mountain. Beautiful views. The stone is a bit far and has no access to visitors. Access has to be done carefully because the road is not well preserved. Definitely worth it.

  • Incrível vista. Quando esta com o céu limpo da pra ver o litoral catarinense, com neblina as montanhas ficam mágicas e misteriosas e no inverno tudo branquinho.
  • Lindo demais
  • Lugar sensacional. Muito alto, vista impressionante. Acesso todo pavimentado. Requer autorização prévia gratuita retirada no centro de Urubici.
  • Lindo lugar! Bom seria se o governo pavimentasse toda serra do corvo branco! Ai a viagem ficaria completa, mas mesmo assim aconselho a vizita
  • Lugar bonito, mas eh completamente ridículo a pessoa ter que ir ate o centro da cidade pra pegar uma autorização pra ver uma pedra furada. Quem nao conhece chega la e nao pode subir a nao ser que volte pro centro, e so vai conseguir caso ainda tenha o documento pra retirar, senao perde a viagem, pois em finais de semana sempre esgota.
