National Park of Aparados da Serra, Cambara do Sul
(4.8/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
The Aparados da Serra National Park is located in the Serra Geral range of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina states in the south of Brazil, between 29º07’—29º15’ S and 50º01’—50º10’ W. It has been created in 1959 as one of Brazil's first national parks, to protect the Itaimbezinho canyon. It extends over an area of 10,250 hectares.Flora and faunaDespite its relatively small size, the park is characterised by a rich biodiversity, as result of its diverse relief and of being situated at the contact between coastal forests, grasslands and Araucaria moist forests. There have been at least 143 bird, 48 mammal, and 39 amphibian species documented in the park.Endangered fauna on the plateaus of the park include the red-spectacled amazon parrot, the maned wolf, and the cougar. On the slopes, the neotropical otter, ocelot and the brown howling monkey can be found.Conservation and threatsWhen created in 1959, the national park protected an area of 13,000 ha. This has been reduced to 10,250 ha in 1972 through a presidential decree. In 1992 adjoining the national park, the new Serra Geral National Park has been created, encompassing an additional 17,300 ha. However, according to the Duke University's Center for Tropical Conservation, the current park area, even after the extension with Serra Geral National Park, is still too small to be effective for the protection of representative samples of each distinct environment.

  • In addition to a place of extraordinary beauty, the people in the Park really strive to "all" function. The Park has restrooms clean, functional. Many of the viewpoints need better conservation. They're pretty worn. Congratulations to all the staff and volunteers of the Park. The trails are marked, and lead the visitor through paths with wonderful views of the Canyon from above. At the end of the trail of the vertex, the shortest, it is still possible to take a detour and go to the handicrafts in Wool Edging Kente. In addition to wool products, it will still take a little coffee or eat a pastel or even have a few good minutes of prose. Visit Cambará do Sul don't let go in the Park. This place really deserves a visit.

  • The Park is home to the canyons Fortress. There is no structure to long stay-on-site, because there are no bathrooms, shadows, restaurants, etc. admission is free and there are representatives of the ICMBio in to supervise the Park and posting information to tourists. We received excellent service by these representatives. The view of the canyons is wonderful and worth a visit, even in the absence of good structure.

  • You know that feeling of not believe what you see? That's exactly what I felt. I wanted to get a small house already and stay there forever. Filled the heart of beautiful memories.
