Description

Marins Peak is a mountain peak in Brazil, between the cities of Piquete and Cruzeiro, state of São Paulo.

The peak stands only about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) south of the Minas Gerais state border, but it is located entirely in São Paulo territory.

It is part of a short spur of the southwestern section of the Mantiqueira Mountains, and it has an elevation of 2,420.7 metres (7,942 ft). Itaguaré Peak is a mountain located on the border of the states of Minas Gerais and São Paulo, in the Serra da Mantiqueira.

Its summit is 2,308 meters above sea level. This traverse starts from base of Marins and continues along the crest of the Mantiqueira mountains to Itaguare.

Can be done in 2 days.

It is a place with little availability of water so it is good to go prepared. You can reach at summit of this two important peaks of brazil.

The first photo is Itaguaré, for me the most beautifull peak in brazil.
