  • To the Cave of the saltpeter topping the Rocky scenery with rugged relief and unique panoramic view wing, walls, quenions, performing formations, dao the uniqueness of the place. To flora and fauna are representative elements of the biosphere reserve of the ridge. HA to recognize the valuable work of the Biotropicos Institute, which in addition to sustainably manage the space and the use of that space, promotes a beautiful work of social inclusion of local residents, expanding the possibilities for a sustainable social and economic development for the community of curralinho. Come meet our design, our headquarters and do not miss the opportunity to surprise the nostalgic scenery of the cave and the picturesque Jurong West community.

  • Attention, do not have waterfalls or rock paintings there (as some pictures). We were unable to contact the Biotrópicos Institute (not by phone or headquarters), so we were on our own. It's close to Diamantina, on the way to extract; just follow the signs to the resort of Saltpeter, which is less than 1 km before the cave. Some local residents said it was a little dangerous to leave the car parked at the entrance of the cave. In fact, there was no other car there when we arrived, but another family arrived after us. The hike to the cave is quite short, but with stairs that hinder access to persons with reduced mobility. The cave is very beautiful! At the end of the visit we saw a howler at the top of the stones, like that in wishing a see you soon!

  • When we were going to Cave of the saltpeter, before our guide, a Mister site, Your ex-garimpeiro,, stopped the car near a stone and showed us a real find, he said that very few people know that place and to our surprise there was a handful of primitive paintings, super sharp, we all get knocked sideways, with the beauty and richness of the site whose historical figures dating back to approximately 4000 years///
