Do Lado De Lá Hut (portuguese for - the other side hut) is a guest house/ hut/ mountain shelter. The people who use its facilities are not necessarily mountaineers, mostly tourists looking for the quiet of the mountain environment, a cold shower at the river by it (since it has tree natural pools, one of them deep, at least 15 feet!
This is quite preicy to stay on, but if you're not really thinking about money and just some good time, this is the right place to be especially in winter time. This is said to be the highest guest house of Brazil, I'm not sure if this is true, but not the highest mountain hut for sure, since in Itatiaia National Park
we have Rebouças Hut
, at almost 8,000 feet high.
The slogan of the guest house/ hut is: "Imagine to sleep at the sound of a waterfall and to wake up above the clouds...". Cheesy line but cool hehehe...(and true!)

To hike/ climb is a dangerous activity and requires proper equipment and clothing, the owner of this page cannot be blamed by injuries caused to anyone who read this page for its info about the mountain, and eventually got hurt by doing so with reckless behaviour or bad weather conditions.
