Catarata dos Couros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

(4.9/5 based on 750+ 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 cataract of leathers is a must. But the path to get there is complicated and, although the entrance with guide is not mandatory, is super recommended that if you hire a local guide. Without the Guide, the arrival the cataract gets complicated because there's a lot of descent and not know until you can go and at what points pass. Hire a guide and enjoy because there is beautiful.

  • Despite the distance (out of Alto Paraíso are 15 km of asphalt and 35 km of Earth) is worth a visit. Free entry, pay just the parking lot. Beautiful waterfalls, light trail. Recommend without doubts!

  • The waterfalls are beautiful and the tour is worth too!! You don't need a special car, any vehicle comes to the site, but has a long dirt road. If you take the BR direction Alto Paraíso/Brasilia, after passing by the waterfall card little monkeys (which is on the other side of the BR), if you're more about 2 KM on BR and got a plate a little rusty announcing Falls leathers. Take this dirt road and follow all life (has some roads viscinais left, never turn, straight ahead). After walking around for 24 km on dirt road there will be a sort of roundabout, take a right. Further on, after about 27 km of dirt road has a fork, take to the left (right if you're going to the restaurants, talk about it below). Just ahead another fork, take left again and ready, and follow a little bit more and you get at the entrance. At the beginning of the trail have how to make ordering meals in local restaurants (goiana home cooking), we reserve the Flor restaurant and love! So, at the end of the spent around 16.30 h, we had lunch there. The tour is a full day, is part of quiet trails and other medium-sized (altogether there are three falls to visit), has many great places for swimming and the natural beauty is stunning.

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