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.

  • It's a beautiful site, worth to see the rock formations, but we went after burned and even the stones were black, because of the recent rain the water was dirty and not shower.

  • The place is very different and I think it necessary to go. But to bathe found the pool too cold and small. Many people who were before said dried enough, but it's a ride that's worth going for the landscape.

  • Place of unique beauty. Its rock formations carved by water make the unforgettable place. The vegetation is typical of Cerrado and very unique. I went after the fire of 2017 and there were many plants in flower. Place mandatory for anyone visiting the high.
