After some rest we continue for another 7 km until we reach the Castelos de Açu at 2232 meters, where we set up the camping area, and spend the night, but not before having a hot soup and macarroni.
DAY TWO, We wake up early to see the sunrise, then after breakfast,  we have 6 km of ups and downs at altitudes between 1990 and 2200 meters, then another 10 km down the mountain, until we reach the other side of the park in Teresopolis. On the way down we also stop for dinner and to check the view at Pedra do Sino.

The Serra dos Orgãos Trekking Expedition has many  beautiful views, flora and fauna.
