Pico dos Marins (2,420) is a broad, rounded rocky peak located between the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Relatively close to the city of São Paulo (3.5 hours by car), it has a clear view towards Vale do Paraíba. It is a classic mountain destination in Brazil and its ascending trail is classified as truly beautiful in the Serra da Mantiqueira.
The takeoffThe ridge is wide and flat. There is enough space to open one or two wings side by side directly on narocha or in small arbusts. The takeoff should be sure and solid to fly safely over the scary cliff after the rock slab.
The flightThe flight potential is enormous, we can go to (1) south and fly over the Paraíba Valley on a flight with almost 1,900m of difference between takeoff and landing or (2) we can fly over the crest of the Serra da Mantiqueira from Pico to Marins Up to Pico do Itaguaré, a sharp and beaty rock formation 7 km near Pico dos Marins or (3) we can go north and fly near the massive stone walls of the north face.
