Vale da Lua, Alto Paraiso de Goias
(4.4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Great place to relax, have some two or three small waterfalls ... However, the visit is worth it because it is very picturesque and differentiated.

  • Although not a very big waterfall, the site is very interesting and has an excellent area for swimming. Worth spending a few hours at the site, even more because it has a reasonable infrastructure and is easily accessible.

  • An amazing place of unique beauty. A must for anyone who goes to the Chapada dos Veadeiros. Admission is 20 reais (10/16). Worth going with time left to soak in the natural pools.
