Velha Waterfall, Mateiros

Waterfall Nature / Park
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.

  • All the way up there is interesting ... even been through a farm whose owner, second told us, Pablo Escobar (will?). The waterfall is beautiful, strong, sonora. You can go downstairs and stay close to the water; but just for assessment, because it's very strong!
