  • The falls of around 30 meters impresses with its beauty and is an invitation to contemplation and/to bath in the well formed by the waterfall. By car, you must follow a dirt road (partially sidewalk with rocks at some excerpts) of 17 km which starts on Highway BR 267 Variant, on the way to the center of Aiuruoca. There's a sign indicating the way to the entrance of the Parque Estadual da Serra do Papagaio (Valley of the Garcias). For those who will drive, I recommend to be careful in the stretch of dirt road, especially in the case of low vehicles, because the deformations and holes in the runway could damage the crankcase protector and the floor of the car. I'm almost at the end of the road, the visitor will come to a fork, where, on the left, you will see a Brown sign indicating "Cachoeira dos Garcias". Just follow this path to get to the Restaurant Couple Garcia, from where the trails to the falls. This last stretch of road (600 metres) has many holes. Those who prefer not to take a risk, you can leave the car parked in the various stopping points distributed along the track. From the restaurant Couple Garcia, at least two trails lead to the waterfall: a shorter and steeper, and another longer and with more gentle slope. Opting for the longest and most friendly alternative, in 10 or 15 minutes in the waterfall. It is worth noting that the stretch closest to the pit (about 20 meters) is covered in the riverbed, step/jump from one stone to another to follow up the waterfall. It's not complicated, but young children may need aid to cross this area.
