It's so beautiful, the view is amazing. If you want to avoid line up go on SUNDAY or any religuis holiday ... We went on Sunday and the lines were less than normal. You still had to wait but at least it was manageable.

We visited this peak with Paraty Explorers (reviewed separately). You need a boat to get here, the nearest from the tiny village of Paraty-Mirim (accessible by bus). A steep trail leads you directly to the top. It took our group of 6 about an hour...More
