Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park, Chapada dos Guimaraes

Chapada is a Brazilian word that means a region of steep cliffs, usually at the edge of a plateau, and it is for these geological formations that Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park is named. With so many of these red, rock formations, panoramic vistas and cascading waterfalls abound. As you explore the park, you will find the dense rain forest gives way suddenly to Cerrado--vast tropical savanna--, and vice versa, like stepping into another world. Explore the park's cave systems, stand at the geographical center of South America, visit the brilliant blue lake which gets its color from microscopic bacteria, or simply enjoy the various flora and fauna, including tropical birds such as macaws and king vultures. A visit to Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chapada dos Guimaraes holiday site to plot your vacation.

  • I was just in 2 places in the National Park of Chapada dos Guimarães, because I was only passing through. I was high in the sky and on the bride's Veil Waterfall. Nevertheless served to replenish my energy. The Brazil is very Rico natural wonders and the country has a lot to learn to invest in tourism. It was worth getting to know.

  • Unfortunately the infrastructure of the Park is very precarious, but worth at least visit the waterfalls, beautiful view on the Bridal Veil. Also enjoy a bath in the two waterfalls, which allow bath. What disappoints in the Park is the absence of a lookout point to admire the cliffs which delineate the way of arrival, but does not have an appropriate stopping point.

  • In the last holiday was in Chapada dos Guimarães with three friends, we know the place and your culture through the Guide Rodrigo Batista, excellent professional, organized, thoughtful and careful! We did the rides in four days with a lot of security, visit the caves, lakes, waterfalls, rock walls, viewpoints and trails; I left with the urge to stay because the city is a real charm with lush landscapes and a spectacular climate. I don't know how I had met before this piece of paradise in our Brazil!
