  • Caparaó National Park is a true spectacle, whether you travel to the top of the "Pico da Bandeira" or the various waterfalls at the base of the mountain. Sunrise on Pico da Bandeira is exciting, you seem to be in another world. The routes are easily accessible, although not suitable for children under 5/6 years. Bring some walking shoes or tennis, I saw so many people go in flip-flops, an absolute madness. Strongly suggested/recommended

  • I LOVED VISITING CAPARAÓ. GET TO THE PICO DA BANDEIRA. UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE. I went along with the class of geography, were orchestrated by a tab on the climb up to the peak ... are not all that reach there due to some fears, I managed to get, unfortunately when I went was cloudy weather, but it was still great.

  • For those who enjoy fresh air, nature and waterfalls, you have the right place to go. Caparaó Park has entrances from the State of Minas Gerais in Alto Caparaó and also by the Holy Spirit to 9 km of Rock Girl, district of Dores do Rio Preto. The Park is home to the Pico da Bandeira, the third highest in Brazil. Is very worthwhile. Beautiful.
