Parque Estadual da Cantareira - Nucleo Pedra Grande, Sao Paulo

4.7
#1 of 12 in Nature in Sao Paulo
Located in a conservation area of the same name, Parque Estadual da Cantareira - Nucleo Pedra Grande is a mountain that reaches a peak of 1,418 m (4,652 ft). Its most distinctive feature, and the origin of the name, which means 'Great Stone,' is the large, exposed patches of smooth, bare rock. Because of the ease of access of its gentle slopes, and the large, mostly flat surface area at its peak, many sports and other outdoor activities are practiced here. Try your hand at hang-gliding, paragliding, climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, camping, hiking, tree climbing, motocross, BMX, and ballooning. Those looking for a less strenuous activity can have a go at dousing or crystal therapy (the quartz in the rock is supposed to have therapeutic qualities), stargazing, or you could simple admire the panoramic view and enjoy the quiet, interrupted only by the howler monkeys that inhabit the area.

  • An extremely charming place! I can say for sure that beauty equals No. You need to use sensitivity to absorb the magnitude of this park. I really think that there is no way to happiness; For I believe that happiness is the way. Says Machado de Assis: "Life is a blackboard in which the fate to write a new case, needs to erase the written case. Therefore to live and be full in feeling, is that we carry in this mantle of tranquility and serenity, where the courage to tread the paths, depends only on us. Excellent ride.

  • Perhaps one of the largest parks in the state, has to have very breath to reach the main point of the park where there is a splendid view of the city of São Paulo. There's a lot of green area. Access only in some parts of the park being that to some extent only people who administer park have access.
