Agulhas Negras Peak

Reviewed By norbafreund - Sao Paulo, SP

The sight is outstanding, and the epoch to visit is the April -October period where chances for extended rains are slim. Book one of the adjourning Pousadas near the upper entrance of the
Parque das Agulhas Negras. It is some 40 km from the Garganta do Registro ( a cross-road where the regular asphalt ends in the BR-354).
It is paramount to have an experienced guide. He will help you with the difficult stretches, besides being well-known by the Park employees , which expedites the process of registering at the Park upper gate.
Once registering with the personnel of the Park, prepare to spend about 8 hours between going up and walking back to the park entrance. The instructions of what to take with you and how to dress you can get from your guide. It is tiring but a very good exercise and the joy of conquering such a high peak, known once as the culminant in Brazil , is definitely worth your while

Serrinha do Alambari

Reviewed By andrelmsantos - Paris, France

Whenever I come to the region I go to the district of Serrinha do Alambari to appreciate the natural reserve. Here you can find absolute peace at the very heart of nature: this dense green spot among all the farms and cities around is the perfect place to rest and take a break from reality, detaching your mind from the urban chaos and pollution from the big cities -- it's the perfect countryside escape! With all its amazing trees and rapids, here you can practice some sport, camp, meditate and so on, be it with the family, on a couple or even with friends.
I totally recommend stopping by to check it out! First off, you can visit the Pedra Sonora (Sound Rock), making your way up by car to the central square, making a right turn after it and continue until you reach the Camping da Serrinha (after about 20 min by car). With an entrance fee of about 12 BRL (3.5 USD) you can profit from the rapids and falls spread everywhere on the camping, especially in a sunny day. They have a small restaurant as well as a sauna right at the bottom of a rapid, really worth trying it!

Cachoeira Veu de Noiva

Reviewed By Gordinho_Chato

Vale a pena...
São 20 min de caminhada...
Tem que levar água para beber, pois no caminho não há bebedouros.
Lugar agradável.
Caminho de carro, moderado...

Prateleiras Peak

Reviewed By Gino V

Went several times to the park and also did Prateleiras, which is the best thing to do after Alguhas Negras. The cilmb is not to difficult and can be done without a giude. When I did the climb it was a bit foggy, but nevertheless wonderful. The hike to the peak is also very nice and not to strenuous.

Poco das Esmeraldas

Reviewed By Lucia Helena A - Seropedica

Different to other falls below this one, it has a few users and most of the time just families. The road to the fall is bad but this brings the isolation to make it the best one in the sequence of falls. The "poço das esmeraldas" or emerald´s pool deserves the name. It doesn´t require long walking to get to the water and there is a section good for kids too.

Militar da AMAN Museum

Reviewed By Ruth b - Buenos Aires, Argentina

The AMAN is a huge military training camp in the centre of Resende, where the public can visit
If you are lucky you can time your visit when the recruits are all training in the pool, stables, assault course, or fields.
There is a free guided tour of the buildings and a museum to spend some time in (with a guide)
Our guide did his best to speak in English for our party!!

Gute Passeios

Reviewed By Gabiortega - State of Sao Paulo

Fizemos a trilha do pico das agulhas negras. Já na troca de emails para contratação percebi a seriedade da empresa, que informou os níveis de dificuldade das diversas trilhas, e nos ajudou a decidir. Os guias são super atenciosos, o Eduardo conhece muito bem o local, contou diversas histórias, tem conhecimento da fauna e da flora do local, além de ser muito atencioso e saber lidar com as situações que aparecem durante o passeio. Sim, ele está em casa!! Vieram nos buscar na Pousada, no horário combinado, e fomos até o parque, que fica distante de Penedo. Vale a pena o preço que pagamos, pois a qualidade do serviço é máxima! Enfim, passeio perfeito.

When you think of climbing in this Park , you only remember of Agulhas Negras, and the Prateleiras
Last week we visited the Pedra do Altar through the 5 Lagos path
It was very special if you like different sceneries.
The comoetition to get a vacancy is easier as compared to the most famous spots and the reward interms of exercise and beauty make it a worthwhile entertainment

Deus Waterfall

Reviewed By Leonardo C - Itatiaia National Park, RJ

This waterfall lies in the heart of Itatiaia's National Park and is really worth going. For those who enjoy being in touch with nature and seek a peaceful place to relax not so far from big cities such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, this is a great choice. A day in the park is surely pleasant and visiting Deus Waterfall is a must. It's a good idea to arrive as early as possible because it's likely to rain in the afternoon (specially in the summer).
