What to Expect
On this hiking trip the guide will take you to the very top of Bico do Papagaio stone, with 989m above sea level and located in Sector A of the Tijuca National Park. The sector is popularly known as Tijuca Forest. It is the second highest mountain in the park and third of the city. Because of its pointed shape, it used to be called Tooth stone or Tooth of the Spirits stone by the superstitious Tupinaba indians, who inhabited Rio de Janeiro during colonization times. They avoided the stone believing it emanated bad fluids, but nowadays, people go there to chill and enjoy the good energy emanating from the forest.

To reach Bico do Papagaio, you will hike through several segments of trails in the Tijuca Forest. Also visit the park museum and take a shower in the Almas waterfall (Waterfall of Souls) while hiking. The tour starts at the park entrance gate, taking you into an easy hiking and so on, until the base of the mountain where in the last 10 minutes you have a more exciting ascent, steep and rugged, with roots and rocks. From the summit you can enjoy the view of the main mountains on Tijuca National Park.
