THE PEDRA DO TELÉGRAFO PICS
Each year thousands flock to one of Rio de Janeiro’s favorite spots to take a death defying, instagram worthy pic. These Pedra do Telégrafo pics are taking instagram by storm. People can be seen doing everything from hanging upside down by their feet to partnered acrobatics, all while 10,000 feet above the ground. Or are they?

The sweeping ocean views are reason enough to make the climb, but tricking a few instagram followers; for many that’s worthy motivation. Instagram is filled with “daring” Pedra do Telégrafo cliff pics. The reality though, is quite different from the framing. Check out the pics below for a full explanation.
