My favorite ever!

Incredibly breathtaking. In some sections, you'll need to use rope to advance. Also, it's dangerous at the top. Try to do this hike when it's not windy.

At the beginning is hard, but after is easy. Very nice!

Incredibly beautiful view. I highly recommend it, but you need good physical preparation and great care in the carrasqueira. Vista incrivelmente linda. Super recomendo, mas precisa de um bom preparo físico e muito cuidado na carrasqueira.

Great trail available during south hemisphere winter. you must book It at advance because of a vistors limit number per day in the National Park. last 8km can be a challenge

Not truly 5 miles, perhaps so on a round trip. Felt completely safe. Guards were present at a couple key points.

Wonderful hike, very few folks on the trail. at trail head authorities took personal info for safety precautions. We felt safe for the entire hike and I am very glad we hoofed it vs taking the tram. We are in fairly good shape but still my legs feel like lead tonight. enjoy!

Local muito bonito com fácil acesso. a entrada é paga, já que o local é privado, mas compensa pela organização. No meu vídeo eu mostro um pouco o Buraco do Padre, e a outra cachoeira é a "cachoeira da mariquinha" https://youtu.be/iCLQ02kbOVY

This is an intense and challenging hike that makes you use all of your body strength. I did it with a guide and used rope and harness for the carrasrqueira part. I saw a few men climb up without ropes. We did a loop starting from another side that is shorter and steeper. I went after consecutive rainy days in Rio, so there was a lot of mud, slippery rocks, and a lot of water in the stream, this made it a bit more difficult since it was hard to maintain good traction on the rocks. My guide also took us to the Garganta do Ceu viewpoint, but again thick fog blocked the view. I would do it again when I come back to Rio. I did not have any view at the top or during the hike because it was really cloudy, a lot of fog, so I did not get my cool summit pictures, but I enjoyed the physical challenge.

Great hike! With the humidity and different type of terrain this hike is definitely a challenge. It took us about two hours to get to the top and two hours back. This hike has beautiful views of the ocean.

Amazing trail. Give yourself 3 days and two nights . Suggestions Hire a mountain guide , June to September , plan water . Deduct 3 to 5 degrees Celsius from any weather forecast .

Great hike just North of São Paulo. Took an Uber to Alberto Löfgren State Park (about 40 min from Paulista area). First part of the hike is paved but has pretty impressive inclines. We took the split to the left (500 km longer) on the way up. The trail to Lago das Carpas was clay and gravel for the most part. We started the hike early and it was mostly shaded, a plus when it is hot and humid. We used mosquito repellent as it was advised by locals. Never encountered any mosquitos but happy to be prepared. Would definitely recommend this hike.

This trail is smal part of a 250 mile trail . It’s a beautiful site seeing and big part of it is on dirt . Be prepared for raining that’s common in this mountain system.

Amazing hike with different types of terrain! Highly recommend! Bring lots of water . Also if short of time there are boats that will take you back to the mainland

Excellent hike and extremely safe. There was officers the whole way up. Which was nice to see Brazil making an effort for safety. Trail took us just over an hour and we have good footwear and do a lot of hiking. There was a couple places that had a good incline, nothing dangerous though. Was a good hike and I would do it again, bring water.

Incredible! Day one was mostly a hike through thicker woods, gaining elevation in a humid setting. By the end of the day it started to rain and we trudged through mud and rock to get to abrigo açú. Day 2 I call Disneyworld because it was like a theme park of sliding down rocks on your butt, scrambling over rocks, climbing the “elevador” a bunch of rebar steps on the side of a sheer rock face, and mounting the “cavalinho” a fallen rock that I later learned is really on the side of a sheer drop off O___O Day 3 is an easy zigzag stroll down through a tropical forest. Abrigos are warm and cozy, beautiful trail even with clouds and little views. Physically demanding but super fun and rewarding. Loved it!!
