Vale da Lua, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.4
A bizarre landscape that recalls the moon’s surface, Vale da Lua is one of the most visited spots in Alto Paraiso de Goias. The rock formations the spot is famous for were carved out by flowing water that left scooping hollows and small gorges where pools collect. These craters and gorges have smooth surfaces that, when filled with water, create natural water slides and bathing pools for visitors. You’ll need hiking boots to get there; but, once there, a swimsuit and water shoes will suit the occasion just fine. You’ll pay a fee upon entering the area, but a guide isn’t necessary and the money goes to the preservation and upkeep of the area.

    Considered the most visited place of the Chapada dos Veadeiros, the Valley of the Moon was not the most exciting place that I saw there. The beauty of the place is different, but nothing to justify spending a whole day there. It was worth getting to know. I will be back in the Chapada dos Veadeiros Yes, but in the Valley of the Moon,

    Obligatory stop to meet, take pictures, go to the location of the bathroom ... but really, it's not a place to spend the day just for being different, exotic. The structure of the kiosks are not very nice, but have the need. 20.00 per person, if I'm not mistaken, as in most places, only takes cash. Very quiet trail to do with the whole family!

    A place out of the ordinary, beautiful visual in the middle of the Savannah. Spectacle of nature. Short track for easy access. Is very worthwhile!

    A bit crowded but such an unique visual! Also easy to reach comparing to other waterfalls and places around.

    Worth visit, interesting geological formation. Top three places in region, not a huge waterfall but it is possible to swim.
