Description

From the Travessao viewpoint, you'll keep going along the trail crossing the whole Serra do Cipó mountain range. You'll pass the altitude fields with a lot of wildflowers and creeks to the first refuge that is a small house made by wood used for trekkers and runners. Then keep going on the trail, crossing the mountain crest to find the Curral refuge, an old house that was used by cowboys and now is for trekkers and runners to sleep.
