Catarata dos Couros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

(800+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
With several waterfalls located in one place, Catarata dos Couros is the perfect way to spend the day, swimming and hiking. It is best to hire a guide since the trail is not marked well and you will learn so much more about the beautiful flora and fauna in this way. To reach the falls, there is a dirt road of about 30 km (18.6 mi) long. The trail itself is only 2.5 km (1.5 mi) and quite rocky so it is wise to wear hiking boots. The water is not too cold so you can take a refreshing and comfortable swim in the river. At the bottom, there is a large drop to the right and two natural pools also great for bathing. On the left side, there are two more beautiful falls and incredible views of the canyon. You can walk most of the route bordering the river, which reveals various landscapes alternating between river rocks, waterfalls, and canyons. All in all, there is much to take in at Catarata dos Couros. By using our Alto Paraiso de Goias travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Catarata dos Couros and other attractions in Alto Paraiso de Goias.

  • From the dirt road will have in the middle of the track two bars of iron or aluminum, just turn right and then keep left (2 times). Has a Lord who takes care of the cars, he even tells you to contribute what you can and indicates the beginning of the trail. On the trail just go down the River from the left side. Go to tab if it is lost on the trails and not know what it's like to be in the wild. I did all the rides high with normal car and without Guide. Watch only if it is raining cats and dogs.

  • The rainy season is better at the chapada dos veadeiros. Many find it difficult to locate, and really is little signaled. Use the maps offline and marues parking of leathers. The road is bad but going on with stroller without problems.

  • The first drops are cool, you can stay in the well and such. But the latest falls and the Canyon end are what make this waterfall worthwhile. The view from the edge last fall is amazing.
