The ‘Serra Fina‘ mountain rage is located in the triple border of the states of Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo,  in Brazil along the Serra da Mantiqueira mountains. The Serra Fina Crossing has one of the largest topographic differences in the Brazilian territory, above 2,000m, and the highest point of the mountain range, Pedra da Mina, is the fourth higher point in Brazil and has a height of 2,798m. Considered one of the most difficult crossings in Brazil, the Serra Fina has fewer water points during the crossing, many hours of walking a day in stretches of great differences and requires high level of endurance and physical exertion. The trekking takes 04 trekking days to be covered, with approximately 32 km. We will start and finish our Adventure in the city of Rio de Janeiro.
