Pico da Neblina to allow visitors again

After a five year period of consultation, Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism has announced (9 January 2020) that the Pico da Neblina, the highest peak in Brazil, 2,995 metres above sea level, in the Serra da Neblina on the Brazil-Venezuela border in Amazonas State, will be open again to visitors, but only visitors using specially approved ground operators. The visitors will also need to be quite adventurous and fit for the climb. as a visit to the peak starts with a four day trek through the Amazon rainforest.

It is hoped visits can start from March 2020.
