Catarata dos Couros, Alto Paraiso de Goias
(4.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The place is a breathtaking view. It's not often that we have the opportunity to see something of such grandeur, but the track is too dangerous. Take food, wear comfortable shoes and only go if you have good physical conditioning. We were told that the guide was not necessary but we got lost, lucky we found a police officer who was visiting ... There's no lifeguard, safety signaling. The guide was extremely rude and made use of drugs in front of anyone. Have lunch on the property side, scheduled for Gessinho, in a red car at the entrance is very worthwhile!

  • Must-see on high. Indescribable encounter with nature. The path must be less than 2 km (one way) to visit all the falls. Children and elderly people can visit the 1st fall (600 m) the other is complicated. Not need Guide ... just margear the River to the left but you can never be too careful because there are dangerous stretches. Until the beginning of the trail has a dirt road (32 km) in terms of bad media. Patience ... Have lunch at the camping of edilueza on back. Great home cooking.

  • Is very worthwhile. Beautiful waterfalls, water at the temperature pleasant. We recommend. At the first fork take care not to make a mistake, you should turn right.

  • Natural beauty in perfection! A roughly 1.5 km-long trail with several waterfalls in several stages, each with bathing possibilities.
