Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.8
#1 of 66 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. Put Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros at the forefront of your travel plans using our Alto Paraiso de Goias tour planner.

    Like too much! We did the trail of canyons, and were the two waterfalls-Carioca and Canyons. The arrival to the Carioca is very difficult, many rocks, but hey, it's worth a lot. My recommendation, if you don't learn to swim and want to stay any longer in the water: first go to the waterfall of Canyons, meet, and then head to Carioca and stay there until the time of leave.

    Finally a Brazilian Park with a good organization. There is an access control, the trails are well marked and the attractions are worth worth km of trail traversed.
