Vale da Lua, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.4
#2 of 44 in Nature in State of Goias
Geologic Formation Water Body
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.

  • The Valley of the Moon is a rock formation actually quite different, it's worth going once. But it's a quick passage because the part to swim is pretty basic (no big deal-at least in the dry season) since there are so many wonderful waterfalls slap, I didn't lose too much time around here. My ride lasted 1 hour and a half and it was enough.

  • This is a magical place, with different rock formations resulting from the action of the waters. Delicious wells, one of them a true power baths allow whirlpool. Access is not particularly difficult.
