near Casa Branca da Serra, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

The "Cabeça de Peixe" (Fishhead) is a beautiful summit in the Serra das Orgões National Park (PARNASO). The peak is next to the famous Dedo de Deus, the finger of God, and provides a beautiful view to the whole mountain range.

The climb is steep uphill and has a few sections with fix ropes. One should bring climbing equipment.

Go early and pay always attention to the weather. Especially in summer sudden thunderstorms are frequent.
