  • Flagged trails, emergency support and kiosks with meal. To explore well, it takes a few days, has many caves. Get ready for the climbs, and Sun in the head. Take plenty of water and a hat.

  • The Park has, basically, three circuits: Window of sky, water circuit and piao Peak. The trail of the window of heaven is the most extensive, around 18 km round-trip. Already the water circuit is shorter, with about of 5 km there and back. The trails are marked and there is no need to guide. Could, Yes, be more indicative of distance plates and a maintenance on the existing boards, because some are in need. It is essential to bring water and food, in addition to sunscreen and hat. Sky window tracks and piao peak are steep and require some physical conditioning. The views and waterfalls are beautiful. The contact with nature is to massage the soul. Don't forget to pick up all your trash.

  • This is my second time at the Ibitipoca State Park, the difference is that this time I was in a period when the visitation is minimal, so I could enjoy with pleasure every detail of the Park. Did all the tracks, at first the Sky window, pulled a lot of trail ascent, but the prize is spectacular, it was like a gift to get there and have only two people dazzling that striking image of yellowish water fall in a infinite horizon, in that their eyes lose sight. This trail leads all day, so get there early and enjoy every detail. On the second day, I made the water trail, also beautiful, but lighter and shorter, dazzling beautiful waterfalls in the Park. On the third day, I made the Top peak, which I hadn't done in my another visit. This trail is a must, too beautiful. Physical fitness is required, as is rising incessantly. The first stop is the cave of Fugitives, cave experience very hot, the cave will narrows until you reach a point where only the body. The second stop is the Cave of travelers, the most beautiful in the Park, huge, you must climb down a wooden staircase to enter the cave, the end of it gives to another entry, it is not necessary to return, will give access to the peak of the top. At the peak, the view is gorgeous, 360 degrees of image mining mountains, upstairs is what remains of a chapel, very beautiful, rewarding!! Take flashlights, food, water, comfortable shoes, and love in your heart! Avoid holidays, I've been in a and it was very stressful because the Park has input and quickly limit ends, off the real appreciation happens when your contact with nature happen between you and the natural environment.
