  • It is to disconnect from the frenzy of the catwalks and walk through the jungle. Bother much, but much, the passage of helicopters. While you enter the station, then it is not necessary to return here and with a shortcut at the end, one gets to the restaurant area.

  • This walk puts us face to face with nature. It requires an extra effort, but without a doubt, it is worth doing

  • We decided to start our tour at Niagara going to this circuit, with the idea of also see something of nature and do something different. Bad decision, very long, only saw a few animals, surely everyone is frightened by the permanent DIN of helicopters (unbearable at times) and at the end there is a waterfall that beside the falls end not worthwhile. There are 8 km round-trip, were dead. And that was not hot. As there is nothing, if you're going to do it to take water and something to eat.
