Thanks to Joao Paulo Barbosa for adding this peak.

Pico da Bandeira is the third highest mountain in Brazil. It is located at the Brazilian Highlands, specifically at the Caparao Range. It has 2.890 meters high. It is very easy to walk up to the summit. It takes beetwen 5 to 7 hours to reach the main summit. From the top you can see, at night, the lights of 11 cities. And, with a clear sky, it is also possible to see, 200 km away, the Atlantic Ocean. A great mountain to introduce a new friend in the world of mountaineering.
