Overview

 

Considered one of the postcards of Rio, Pedra da Gávea is the largest seaside monolith in the world. With more than 800 meters of altitude, due to its location and characteristics, it has always been a reference for navigators. It was only in 1830 that the first expeditions began to be undertaken to its summit, which, since then, has received a large number of visitors on its trails and rocky slopes, becoming a carioca reference for the practice of mountaineering. It is a trail with a heavy degree of difficulty and approximately three hours of walking, so it should only be done by people with good physical fitness and used to heavy and technical hikes. In addition, it is always good to be accompanied by an experienced guide or hiker and bring a rope, safety equipment, shoes and suitable clothing. So much exercise effort is rewarded by one of the most beautiful natural views in the world.
