Description

The Serra dos Orgaos National Park is famous for its spectacular rock formations, and its highest peak is known as Pedra do Sino (Bell Stone) at a height of (2275m / 7465ft). 

To get there, we have to start the hike from the entrance of Teresópolis (around 1:30 hours drive - 100 km / 62 miles from Rio). 

The trail is (11 km / 6,9 miles - one way). The ascent does not last more than 4 hours. There is a plenty of fresh water and waterfalls on the path.
