Velha Waterfall, Mateiros

#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.

  • Cachoeirra is wonderful. If you can reach it by a long wooden footbridge and you have a lovely view. As she is pretty big and strong it is not recommended to go for a walk, only to look and admire the beauty of the place. I went with guides, Eco Adventure Tour, spent 360° Tours. to take beautiful photos. It's worth it!

  • A very beautiful waterfall, with green water and very strong. A walkway with a visual cool leads to her. Another great option to break the journey to Jalapão.
