I'm here in Valadares to paraglide... actually I'm here for the World Championship (2013) and Ibituruna is our launch site. Lucky me. Actually, it's a pain to get up here. The road is almost entirely comprised of cobblestone which will render most vehicles in Valadares useless in a matter of months. Thus, trips up the mountain can be expensive and... More

There's no way that you can visit Governador Valadares without going to the Pico Da Ibituruna! It's a fantastic place! From the top of this big mountain you can see the entire city, that has a shape of a guitar. You will probably see some people adventuring and Paragliding from both sides of the Pico da Ibituruna. It's also a... More

After sightseeing the Pico de Ibituruna,I would highly recommend eating some of the fantastic local specialties,such as,"rabada" or a tasty ,unforgettable dish of "mocoto". I can assure you,you will never forget this gastronomic experience,especially if you accompany it with a good shot of the delicious 'cachaca mineira'. The only downpoint to the experience is the arrival and departure from the... More

When visiting Governador Valadares (or if you are just passing trough some road over there), must go to Ibituruna peak. There's no big infrastructure over there, but it's an excellent place to view the town and all area... It's only a few minutes from the town.

Not only the view of Governador Valadares but let your eyes reach most the region around _ you'll understand the Valley of Rio Doce.

I went to Pico da Ibituruna in 2007. Its a gorgeous drive up a cobblestone road to the top - takes about 30 mins. I believe it has been the point of one of the stages of the world paragliding championships. The view is breathtaking. There's a small kiosk at the top, selling drinks and snacks. Nearby, accomodation wise, there's... More

There are several versions of the name given to the mountain: dark cloud, or dark mountain that resembles black clouds. Other versions indicate that Ibituruna means land high and black, or "black mountain" or... More
