Velha Waterfall, Mateiros
(4.6/5 based on 190+ 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 cachoeira da Velha is beautiful. Horseshoe shaped, she's tall and has a good volume of water throughout the year (including the months of drought). Access is she is good and the atmosphere is very well preserved. In contrast, however, other attractions of Jalapão the visitor can't-for obvious security issues-interact with her. Anyway, it's worth the visit.

  • Road with enough cow rib, total dirt road. The waterfall and very pretty and at the end have a beach to cool off the trip. Get ready to shimmy a lot along the way

  • Just to contemplate because you can't take a shower. The landscape is very beautiful, it is worth every effort spent on dirt roads to reach.
