  • Amazing waterfalls as the Green Valley, enchanted Valley and the swallow Falls in the mining side of the Park. In the first, with a good barbecue. Amazing photos with sunny weather or cloudy. On the final ascent limit, Tronqueira drive, there are 1900 metres altitude, the cold and the landscape make up perfect setting for a weekend at the camping. Good structure of bathrooms. Team of highly qualified for some stealing food vulnerable.

  • The Caparaó National Park is one of the most beautiful of Brazil. Exuberant nature, beautiful waterfalls, trails, valleys and the majestic Pico da Bandeira. I took advantage of the Verde Valley, the enchanted Valley, the Beautiful Waterfall and I went up to the Pico da Bandeira. At the moment there are charging the entrance in the Park, both by the side of the Holy Spirit as from the mines.

  • I really enjoyed and have visited the Park, very clean and well maintained with various wild animals living on it. In the park there are options to do the trail's to the pico da bandeira and enchanted Valley, recommend doing both.
