Nature / Park Must See
Rich in fauna and flora, Parque Estadual do Ibitipoca is one of the most beautiful state parks of Minas Gerais. From a choice of three trails, all varying in degrees of difficulty and length, you can explore rare quartzite caves, peaks overlooking the immense sea of mountains, maroon-colored streams, natural swimming pools, and some of the most spectacular waterfalls. Guides come highly recommended, and add considerably to your experience with their invaluable knowledge and expertise, especially in identifying the numerous species of animals you will see on your hike. The gateway to this natural retreat is the rustic town of Conceição de Ibitipoca, one of the oldest and most traditional in the area. Make sure you buy some delicious cinnamon bread from Dona Maria, whose house you’ll pass on your way.

    Beautiful park, but jeez, check a few places, and lots rapidly and as arrives in the queue window of photos is insupportable, Mai's to 2 hours to get. But is very worthwhile!

    If you're heading to Ibitipoca, surely the reason is to visit the Park. He is right next to the city centre and has excellent structure, with an administrative office with geo-biologia exhibition about the Park and shop, restaurant and toilets. The trails are very well marked.

    Very nice and well signposted. Did the trail from the window of heaven, the view is amazing. Compensates for the entire hike. The back is tiring, but worth the effort.
