Parque Estadual Caverna do Diabo, Eldorado

4.7
Caverna da Tapagem , also Caverna do Diabo, is a cave located within the Jacupiranga State Park next to the Alto Ribeira Tourist State Park, in the municipality of Eldorado Paulista, Iporanga, 280 km from São Paulo, Brazil. It is the second longest cave in the state of São Paulo and also the highlight of what the local guides call "Circuit Disneyland," which is a series of family attractions that people of all ages can enjoy.DescriptionThe beginning of the formation of the cave is pointed out by researchers as occurred about 600 million years ago, during the Precambrian era. Today almost 10 km of galleries and halls have already been mapped, all rich in speleothems. Of the 6.237 meters of the cave whose entrance measures approximately 40 meters high, 3.200 meters have already been surveyed, of which only 700 meters are free for tourists. It measures 152 deep from one side of the cave to the other. All this area has a sound system and lighting, walkways, stairs and handrails for safety measures.The cave contains numerous stone curtains, columns, towers, travertine, stalactites, stalagmites and calcite cascades which intrigue specialists and tourists who try to unravel the mysteries of the place. At times, to overcome obstacles, it is necessary to use ropes to be sure of standing on safe ground. Inside the cave, the silence is broken only by the waters that glide over the rocks. The most interesting formations can be seen in the hall known as "The Cathedral". Some of these forms were immortalized with names somewhat strange like the Guardian, Snow White, Cemetery, Three Kings, Temple of Doom, Devil's Cauldron and Tower of Pisa. Each group of tourists is formed of 12 visitors, at intervals of 20 minutes between them, and each one is allowed to stay no longer than 60 minutes inside the cave.

    I don't even know where to begin the happy encounter in this place! Is mysterious and Rico! A place that impresses the world giant underground and lengthy. Besides having a unique beauty and appalling. Certainly a kind of ride unique and unlike any other natural experience I've ever experienced.

    The entrance and collected and a bit salty but the explanation and guide condition. It's worth going and see up close the geological formation of cracks. (roof and floor), i.e. the stalactite and stalagmite. Also has stories of Indians and their beliefs and of slaves. A voyage to the bottom of the Earth (just the beginning) without having physical sacrifice that the infrastructure and very well done.

    Simply fascinating. With structure. On site form groups with guides and do the visitation. The road to Eldorado until the Park is very bad. But it's worth it. The Park is very beautiful.
