  • One of the places worth visiting. Near Belo Horizonte, quiet access, just avoid come and go at peak hours (going back 9:00 5:00 pm) of Serra do Cipó. The Park is very well structured with visitation Center, trails, museums and guides. A little more of paleontology, the kids loved the walk in the cave and the explanations of the guides.

  • Of 8:30 hs at 10:10 hs did the Sinkhole with the House Ordinance entrance Fernão Dias. Very organized, clean and staff very polite. The guide of this trail was Vanessa. Very well prepared and attentive. On this trail you can see specific vegetable, rock paintings and the Sinkhole pond that, this time, is totally empty. It seems that the best time to view the pond full is December. Take your bottle of water and your lunch. Then I went to another Ordinance (Gruta da Lapinha) to make the visitation of the Gruta da Lapinha cameras Lapinha (another trail, shorter, with visitation to the cave of the Macumba). The Gruta da Lapinha really is a standout and is worth a lot to experience. The day was pulled and, for this, I will be back soon to see the Museum and the Castelinho.

  • Great ride! Delicious tracks with the Sinkhole pond. Some caves including Gruta da Lapinha that is open to visitation. I highly recommend!

  • Legal
  • I evaluated the Museum Peter Lund, the archaeological museum and the Gruta da Lapinha separately; from what I've seen is where there is availability of visitation in the Park. I believe that in the future the Park can be best explored from the point of view of tourism and education.

  • It's good to have a nature reserve but is very poorly managed.
