Let’s wake up early in the morning and drive about 100km to Teresópolis. When we arrive it’s time to go to the supermarket to buy our food. We‘re going to need at least 3 meals including snacks, at the top is impossible to buy food. After shop let’s go to the Serra dos Orgãos National Park to start our hike. The trek has an extension of 11km and 1100m of vertical rise, it takes around 5-6 hours. On the way there’s plenty of natural spring water and waterfalls.
Almost on the top is located the Pedra do Sino refuge, where we going to spend our night. The refuge has a kitchen, toilet with hot shower and a room with some bunk beds. We have time to get something to eat, supply our water and head to the top. About 20 min hike we reach the Top of Pedra do Sino, 2275m above the sea level, enjoy the nature and take lots of pictures. After the sunset let’s go down to the refuge to have a hot shower and prepare our dinner.
Next morning I do recommend wake up early to watch the sunrise at the top, It’s amazing! After a good breakfast let’s pack our stuff, supply our water and start to hike down, it takes around 4-5h sometimes less. The last stop is at a famous view point where you can take the last pictures from the main mountains of the Park.
