Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.8
#1 of 93 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.

  • Are 4 tracks, being 1 of easy access, two of about 10 km, and a must have Guide, and camping in the Park. This guide is only possible be made in dry period, that would be our winter. I was in full in February, and did the trail of hops, it is not difficult, but there are portions of rockets, stones and etc, better make the track with tennis. The view is wonderful, the heels are hot, there are two stops for bathing. It's worth it!

  • I did the trail of jumps and the canyons (the Canyon I was closed in the rainy season). Both are amazing and very different, it's very rewarding to get the waterfalls after the long walk. Worth knowing the two, admission is free, go more often. The trail of the jumps is a little heavier than the canyons, despite being with a shorter distance. It's good to pay attention to the rains in this period and take a lot of water in times of drought.

  • Well structured Park and flagged. Did the trail of Leaps and Rapids. Are tracks long, tiring but compensates for the view of the fall of the jumps and then has a nice bathing beach following later.

  • After knowing other places in the area I consider it nice but not the best. Can get crowded.
  • Amazing National Park to visit, highly recommend for those that enjoy hiking, bird watching or simply being in contact with nature.
  • I did not go inside but we stayed on the village near by. Its a great place to be!
  • Awesome! best place for hiking through nature, the sight is fantastic!
  • Amazing place! Gorgeous natural beauty, perfect for those who love waterfall, hiking, and enjoying the outdoors. The trails are well organized with arrows guiding you through the different paths. The entry is free, but you need to get there early before it reaches the maximum visitor allowed capacity.
