Serra Fina is a mountain range located on the triple border of the states of Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo, along the Serra da Mantiqueira. The Serra Fina Traverse has one of the highest topographical differences in the national territory, above 2,000m, and the highest part of the mountain Pedra da Mina, is the fourth highest point in Brazil and has an altitude of 2,798m.
Considered one of the most difficult crossings in Brazil, the Serra Fina is indicated for people who have already practiced other crossings with camping and with a high degree of difficulty.
There are few water points during the crossing, many hours of walking per day in stretches of great unevenness, and it requires a high level of stamina and physical effort. It can be done in two, three, or four days.
