The trail is quite exhausting as it goes straight up, there are no serpentines and it was really hot! Make sure to take enough water and maybe an energy bar or something to eat before going down. I think it took us almost an hour but it's well worth it. The views from there are just breathtaking!

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.

Dang, I wish I could give this hike 10 round circle dots of trip advisor liking. It's pretty amazing. We did it after it had been raining the days before so it was a little slippery in places , but the hike was good, got our hearts pumping for sure. The views from the top are pretty breathtaking, especially on a sunny day! Do it , and enjoy!

After spending 6 days in Rio celebrating carnival my wife and I thought it would be a good idea to get some exercise and complete this hike. We did the hike mid February and what was 38C weather. What can I say, the trek up was a bit challenging but the guides are great. Take your time, no need to rush and just know that at the top is a spectacular view and a nice cool breeze to freshen you up. I would recommending doing this tour as it gives you a great opportunity to see what Paraty is. From taking a public bus to a boat to the base of the peak to the view from the top.

After a 40 min bus ride down rough roads, then a boat ride to get to the small village at the base of this peak a group of 60ish Canadian adults started the climb. We were with Michael of Paraty tours , who provided encouragement without pushing us along. Although two of the five in the group had to turn back as they were weak from some earlier digestive system issues , the three who continued were rewarded by an interesting, challenging hike and phenomenal views and photo ops at the peak. The heat and humidity created a challenge, however it made the swim and the beer that much better when we returned to the base. It was finished off by an excellent, simple fish lunch at the bottom, fish caught by the husband of the cook.
