Despite its boring and graceless trail, the top really worth the effort to get there. Remember to carry your lunch and enjoy the view while having it. It's superb.

I spent Spectacular night sleeping on the peak.
4 hours (1300m elevation) trekking to the top. Amazing nature. Amazing views. Trek is a piece of cake.

Pedra do Sino ("bell stone") is the highest peak (2.275m) of Serra dos Órgãos and offers you spetacular views of the many beautiful surrounding peaks and up to the city of Rio de Janeiro in a clear day.

The peak is in Serra dos Órgãos National Park, in the city of Teresópolis, about 100km from Rio de Janeiro city center.

The trail: It's an easy -- but VERY long -- walk until the top. More than 10km, usually more than 3 hours in a good pace (not rushing) each way. Do not go if you're not used to long walks.

Lenght: You can do it in a single day (arrive early -- 8 am -- to do that) or you can spend a night in a basic lodge very close to the peak (15 min.), or even camp in the lodge area. Check prices and reservation with the National Park before you go (the lodge is usually full in fridays and saturdays during the winter season)

Money: Price to the trail in jun/12 was R$ 30 for brazilians and R$ 55 for foreigners for a single day. It's more expensive (but not the double) if you stay there 2 days.

When to go: Winter days are usually clearer -- but always check the weather before you go. You may see nothing at the peak in a cloudy day.

Who is able to go: Anyone in good shape.

Serra dos orgaos national park is close to rio de janeiro city, beautiful hike, or trekking, as you wish.
Great views of Baia da guanabara from Pedra do sino summit on clear days.
I love this place, always I'm tired I go there, I come back a better person.
There are some facilities in the top, there is a hut where you can pay for beds or a shower .
You camp too.
