Pedra da Gávea is a must-visit attraction in Rio, famous for being the largest monolith by the sea in the world. With over 800 meters (2,624 ft) of altitude, this geological formation has always been a landmark for navigators due to its location and characteristics.
 

While the first expeditions to its top began in the 1830s, today it attracts many visitors who enjoy mountaineering and hiking. However, the trail to the top is quite challenging, taking approximately three hours of strenuous walking. Therefore, it's recommended that only those with good physical condition and experience in technical hikes attempt it.
 

Additionally, an experienced guide equipped with proper gear and safety equipment will accompany you. All you need to bring is appropriate footwear and clothing. The breathtaking view from the top is well worth the exercise and effort, making it one of the most beautiful natural views in the world.
