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.

  • The Valley of the Moon is 6 km from the village of São Jorge and 24 km of Alto Paraíso. Access is paid. Cost R $20.00 per person. The river is 600 m from the entrance gatehouse. In the dry season the rocks become more visible and bathing is possible.

  • Super cute place! Best to visit early or late in the afternoon, where there are more shadows, and the formation of stones is more like the moon.
