Southern Muriqui

Carmo Road is without doubt the best birding trail in Intervales, the road used for birding cuts through the forest taking birders to Carmo valley crossing different types of vegetation such as: bamboo, secondary and primary growth. Apart from the birds, if you are lucky you can also see the largest primate in America the famous Southern Muriqui, this species lives in groups in those last remnants of the primary growth of the Atlantic Forest left.
