  • A beautiful waterfall with good structure, has a restaurant at the entrance and the track is well take until the well. Well worth a visit.

  • Far from Alto Paraíso (more than 80 km round trip) the site has excellent infrastructure (parking, restrooms, restaurant/snack bar, tables and chairs). The path to reach the waterfall is short. How is private property, you pay to have access to the site. The visual I can't describe here, just going there to contemplate this wonder of nature.

  • Wonderful place for bathing. Beautiful waterfall with great place p swim and with a Sandy Beach next door. Easy access and excellent infrastructure. The place is so incredible that we stay hours there. Many moms with children since the prainha is very good. In my opinion, one of the most beautiful waterfalls of the Chapada. Loved it! I highly recommend!
