Velha Waterfall, Mateiros

4.8
#3 of 12 in Things to do in Mateiros
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.

    The Old falls is unmissable attraction in Jalapão, on empty days, you can be alone in one of your points of admiration. There are internal track that gives in a little Beach, where it is also possible to arrive by car.

    Unique, has a deck that leads to attraction, the force of the water is wonderful. Feel the water droplets in the air even with the fall of the water so far.

    The force of the water is really impressive and beautiful too! Especially when thinking that this volume of water is in the middle of the Savannah. On this tour there is the option of rafting-preferred to admire the view, but next time I want to do!
