Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Staff and volunteers. Nice ride, well signposted, but with some parts difficult to access. Breath-taking views, I highly recommend to those who enjoy hiking and adventure.

  • The Park is an invaluable wealth, the canyon is beautiful, the waterfall carioquinha, too, but Mt difficult access. When I arrived at the waterfall almost back to back. It was Mt complicated! Steep place, stands on a mountain, practically a rappelling out of rope. The stones are smooth ... well slippery ... don't like! But park staff, volunteers, are thoughtful and gentle, 100000. For this tour, I suggest getting there at 8:00, make the trail and then go to another waterfall. But the vision is too beautiful!

  • if u come to Brazil its a must go place. there is a lot of green, wild life, awesome waterfalls and rivers. its a cheap place with a lot of interesting options. English is spoken in some parts of the place due to the huge number of foreigners that visit or come to live there.
  • Beautiful National Parks with good trails and huge waterfalls
  • Surely one of the best National Parks in all of Brazil. There is easy access to plenty of waterfalls, thermal springs, weird rock formations and naturally hundreds of hikes in the area (most of them outside of the officially declared park limits). The best base to stay is a hotel/pousada in Alto Paraíso de Goias as from there you'll have access to either side of the park and main roads. I, personally, don't recommend to make São Jorge your base camp as the place is dusty and lacks infrastructure. No asphalted roads and the food in town is pretty bad in comparison to what you find in Alto Paraíso de Goias.
  • Beautiful and not expensive
  • Wonderful
