The Pedra da Gávea trail is the ideal challenge for those looking for adventure, adrenaline and the most beautiful look of Rio de Janeiro – RJ.
The Pedra da Gávea has 842 meters and is one of the most famous rock formations of the wonderful city. Going up Pedra is the dream of many travelers and Cariocas, because from the top of the largest rock block by the sea the world is possible to see the Bay of Guanabara and some of the main beaches of the city of Rio de Janeiro as Ipanema, Leblon, Barra da Tijuca and São Conrado, as well as some other mountains of the Tijuca National Park, such as Tijuca Peak, Papagaio Peak, Pedra Bonita and Corcovado, and on days of blue sky you can also see the mountains of the Serra dos Órgãos.
The Pedra da Gávea trail is considered a very beautiful walk and with several natural obstacles easy to overcome, but most of the time the climb is steep and heavy.
The main challenges on the Pedra da Gávea trail are the great climb of about three to four and a 30-meter stretch of basic level climbing called Carrasqueira. The good thing is that to win the climb in the Carrasqueira is not necessary to have previous experience.
I recommend everyone who wants to make the trail take the backpack with at least 2 liters of water, snack, and repellent. Choose some sneakers without a cushioning system that provides firmness to your feet or, if possible, buy suitable footwear for this type of adventure.
When you reach the top of Pedra da Gavea do not forget to explore the surroundings and the main points for the photo; Top of the Pyramid; Chair; Base Plate Jump, rear plate and table.
I hope you enjoy the tips and do not forget the recommendations before starting the adventure.
