Velha Waterfall, Mateiros

(4.7/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • The waterfall is about 20 metres and 100 metres wide. Great to take a bath, admire the scenery, have walkways that serve as lookouts. Has a super quiet, beautiful beach with thin sand. A location blessed by God!

  • Impossible to imagine how is that volume of water from a semi desert scenery. Well structured, with safe and easy access walkway, and a short walk to observe a viewpoint the beauty of the place. In the region of the falls the water prevents bath, which can be carried forward on a beach of the river that leads to the falls. Beautiful!!
