We went up here everyday for almost two weeks, for paragliding starts. The view is majestic, very good place to fly, well-equipped, and has a good little cafeteria.

This mountain provides extensive views over the whole area, being cooler than the lowlands it's a good place sit and watch the sunrise or sunset. There is a small cafe on the ridge which holds a wide selection of snacks and drinks. This is a top spot for paraglider and hang glider take offs so a lot to see.

It is a really uphill ! Should be a good idea use a 4 wheel drive car in rainy days. The road until peak is made by stone, and it is very irregular. When you reach the top don't forget to go to until the TV Transmissions tower and also enjoy the sight from both ramps. These ramps are used... More

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
