Vale da Lua, Alto Paraiso de Goias

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
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 section is quite short, about a 100m in length, and it is not worth the long trip to go from say, Brasilia to see it. There are nothing else around to make your trip worthwhile. Especially, people...  more »

  • The geologic background of this area gives it a crater like look, which is definitely fascinating to see. You can find this place close to the town Alto Paraiso. You need to pay a small fee to see it....  more »

  • A bit crowded but such an unique visual! Also easy to reach comparing to other waterfalls and places around.
  • Stunning place, pleasant swim in the river. Paid entry but well worth it!
  • You have to come here.
  • Worth visit, interesting geological formation. Top three places in region, not a huge waterfall but it is possible to swim.
  • Surreal!
