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.

  • The waterfall is really very beautiful and very nice to the little beach is take a bath of rio, however, is far away from both of Ponte Alta as of Mateiros, and to get it almost 100 km of dirt road as much of one as of the other city. I think only worth it if you have to go from one town to another and then take advantage of to make a stop. Out of the hotel p make the visit I think doesn't pay, here are some other beautiful places and closer since the road is bad enough.

  • Nice location, easy access trail by a plateau of wood. Pictures and visually stunning with plenty of water. Worth the visit!
