  • It's a nice place, good for those who like to swim, because it has a good well. I heard it was "dangerous", but I don't (obviously, for those who know how to swim, because it is deep). Got rocks slippery, but almost every waterfall is like that, huh? Recommend access with special car, which makes you life closer to the track (you have to walk a while, anyway). The trail that leaves from the Church of High until the waterfall, to be made on foot, I found away. Even more than on the way is downhill, then, on the way back. Climb, climb and climb. But for those who have greater preparation (endurance), and really want to walk the track is clean. Signage, in fact, haven't seen much. That's why I've been quiet for going with a guide (Nefelibatas, Lavras Novas). My pet was also and enjoyed a good ride.

  • The trail in your great part is quiet, and well signposted, closer to the waterfall is that she gets a little closer, but when you get to the waterfall is worth. She doesn't have a fall dàgua too big but has a really hot swimming pool where you can swim and take lots of pictures. For those who do not is a fan of ice water, you have the option to stay on the rocks around her, drinking something and enjoying the visual.

  • We drove through the village and after Church the right took a narrow and poorly signaled good access to near the waterfall. (On rainy days it might be better to leave the car near the Church and go on foot I think is 30 min walk) Easy walk for 15 minutes, location great for swimming with several wells and enjoy nature! Take water and snacks and your garbage back!
