Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.8
#1 of 64 in Parks in State of Goias
Gorges that call to you with the sweet sound of a shallow river and eye-popping waterfalls that drown the river out with their powerful descent; all of it is at Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros. This is also the home of Moon Valley with its scooped rock formations that create natural water slides. In fact, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site in 2001, so the 1.8 billion year old forest will be protected for all time. The protected land hosts thousands of visitors each year, but the wilderness is expansive enough that you may never see them. Wear your best hiking shoes, a pair that handle both dirt paths and rocky passages, and bring snacks and water for the trek. Consider shacking up in nearby Sao Jorge where the inns are simple and clean, and the locals are friendly.

  • Did the yellow trail c my mae (66anos), my daughter (15 years perky and sedentary) and my wife pregnant for 3 months. All made in good, but it's exhausting, especially in the final is a descent km well steep until the waterfall, which is beautiful. Water wasn't cold, cold only, which is good because I couldn't go bad. If you do this trail (intermediate) back down and stop in the Rapids, is very worthwhile. It's beautiful, with small natural pools excellent p children. P.s. came in nov/2017, shortly after the fire, and I say q nao fumbled almost didn't see the signs.

  • Staying in São Jorge, you will already be practically in the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park, but to make the option of staying in Alto Paraíso, also is not very far, because in both of these options you'll need be by car, to have access to various tours lead to the numerous waterfalls in the region. Rent a car in Brasilia, and the Park is 230 kilometers from the airport. Another basic need is you take a canteen, thermal preference, so you'll have fresh water all day. Make a good breakfast and take in your backpack, as well as some fruit towel, because there's nothing there to eat and the ride consumes practically all day. There are several options of hiking trails, all have in your course, indicative, both arrows to go back. A good physical preparation is key, because the tracks have many ups and downs and the waterfalls are by steep rocks. The trail of the canyons, which is the medium-haul, will lead you to two waterfalls, with a route of about 10 kilometers. If it has no where to take shelter if you are in a waterfall, seek higher ground immediately. Despite all the devastation that last burnt did in the Park, the trails and waterfalls remain very good. You don't pay anything to enter and parking is charged R$15,00.

  • This tour is for those who like to track and waterfalls. My favorite is the trail of canyons, where visiting two waterfalls on the same track. Self guided trails with 5 km 5 km more and back.
