Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park, Chapada dos Guimaraes

4.5
#1 of 24 in Nature in State of Mato Grosso
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.

    Dozens of trails and attractions, impossible to know at once. The structure of the Park is a precarious pouci, but what we saw works fairly well.

    These magical places to know and contemplate with time. Go with tranquillity, to spend the whole day. And in the mood to walk. Drink plenty of water and enjoy too!

    I spent a whole day on High and went straight to the National Park, because we had information of the beauties of the Park. Many waterfalls, some must be done with a guide but other can do on their own. We know the cachoeirinha, Valentine and the veil of the bride. All very beautiful.
