  • Where the applications asks for "alternate ID" put your drivers license information.

Brazil Fun Facts

Did you know that the highest mountain in Brazil was hidden for centuries and wasn’t formally discovered until the 1950’s?

Due to its extremely remote location, the fact that it’s a lone peak in a river basin, and the all encompassing shroud of mist, Pico da Neblina remained undiscovered until the 1950’s. This was centuries after the majority of Brazil had been thoroughly mapped. It is located on the border with Venezuela and peaks at 9,823 feet above sea level. It was ascended in 1965 which was 12 years after the first ascension of Mount Everest.The name Pico da Neblina means “mist peak” due to it being almost permanently cloaked in clouds.
