Andorinhas waterfall, Ouro Preto

4.2
#3 of 10 in Outdoors in Ouro Preto
Private tours take visitors to the pristine Andorinhas waterfall, located in Parque das Andorinhas, a large environmental protection area. Expert guides can lead you up a series of trails leading to this waterfall, which is famous for its rock formations creating a sort of small cave. These ancient stones attract hundreds of swallows each summer, prompting locals to call this site the "Waterfall of the Swallows." Keep in mind that in order to enter this cavern you will need to go down a short ladder, so comfortable clothes and soft shoes are highly recommended. For those looking for less adventure and more relaxation, the park also offers a variety of activities, like swimming, sunbathing, , and picnicking.

  • Without a doubt the most unique waterfall I've ever seen. His fall is between two large stones providing shade and a very reverberant sound. There is an iron ladder to gain access to water where it forms a shallow and small pool between the rocks. The trail is very quiet easy level only complicates on arrival at waterfall because the matter under a stone and the way up the stairs is quite narrow, making the passage of large groups and who wants to get back on track.

  • I've never seen something like that, a waterfall between the rocks, magnificent and charming, I went from independence square walking RS, there's got to be available but the bath carried all my energy and is not so cold compared to of ilha grande in Rio de Janeiro.

  • The waterfall is in the Park of the swallows, admission is free, is very worthwhile, an incredible view of beautiful mountains, rocks and this wonderful waterfall, which is well hidden among the rocks, to bathe, is not deep, very cold water because it lies between the rocks, to access there is some difficulty, because you need to spend beautiful rocks and down a ladder, but is very worthwhile.
