The Beleza (Beauty) Mountain Range has a typical outline, with its rounded summits and varied levels, like “mountain waves” – a so-called “sea of hills”. The vegetation on the slopes is made out of tall and medium-sized virgin forest and undergrowth.
With an altitude of 1,300m, Pico dos Piris is its highest point, followed closely by Pico do Cavalo Russo, at 1,295m.
The best view is offered by the Mirante da Serra lookout point, situated at the highest point of highway RJ-137, which crisscrosses the range. From there once can see as far as Pico do Cavalo Russo and the Santa Rita de Jacutinga church tower, in Minas Gerais
