Velha Waterfall, Mateiros

(280+ reviews on the web)
Fed by the waters of the Rio Novo, the horse-shoe shaped falls of Velha Waterfall (Old Waterfall) are the highest in Jalapão. More than 40 m (130 ft) across, the falls are an impressive show of nature's strength and beauty. Not far from the falls, and with only a strong current to indicate the proximity of the powerful torrent, lies a small, peaceful freshwater beach. Put Velha Waterfall into our Mateiros itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Waterfall in the middle of nowhere, with an impressive flow of water. Really impresses the fact of having nothing around to indicate this amount of water. Has the possibility of rafting on the Rapids, however I found it too high to do. The opposite of what I thought, you can't enter the waterfall because it has a lot of stone and and chain is very strong, making it a suitable place for diving.
