The Serra dos Órgãos National Park is a Federal Conservation Unit located in the city of Teresopolis Mountain Region – Area: 771 km² / Altitude: 871 m / Average temperature: 18° / It is the highest city in the state of Rio de Janeiro
Created on November 30, 1939, PARNASO is the third oldest park in the country, representing an important milestone in the history of Brazilian Conservation Units.
It is one of the best places in the country to practice mountain sports, such as climbing, hiking, rappelling and others; as well as having fantastic waterfalls. The Park has the largest network of trails in Brazil. There are more than 200 kilometers of trails at all levels of difficulty: from the suspended trail, accessible to wheelchair users, to the heavy Petrópolis-Teresópolis Crossing, with 30 km of ascents and descents through the high part of the mountains.
Among the climbs, Dedo de Deus stands out, considered the starting point of climbing in the country.
It was created in 1939 to protect the exceptional landscape and biodiversity of this stretch of Serra do Mar in the Mountain Region of Rio de Janeiro. There are 20,024 hectares protected in the municipalities of Teresópolis, Petrópolis, Magé and Guapimirim.
The Park is home to more than 2,800 species of plants cataloged by science, 462 species of birds, 105 species of mammals, 103 species of amphibians and 83 species of reptiles, including 130 animals threatened with extinction and many endemic species (which only occur in this location).
