Pireneus state park, Pirenopolis

#6 of 8 in Nature in Pirenopolis
National Park Nature / Park
The site of one of the last fragments of undisturbed Cerrado (tropical savanna), Pireneus state park is rich in biodiversity and ancient rock formations. Visit the second highest peak in the state to see 2-billion-year-old blocks of quartz and sandstone, which are home to many colorful lichens, rare cacti, and hundreds of species of orchids. Nearby are dozens of waterfalls, as well as three mountain peaks offering panoramic views of the Central Plateau of Brazil. Many trails around this area attract hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. Whatever you choose to do here, don’t forget to bring a camera. If you stay for the sunset, which is highly recommended by locals, bring a warm sweater. Temperatures drop quickly once the sun goes down.

  • Near Pirenópolis, is way for almost all the waterfalls in the city, is a must in the end of the day, the access is easy, old signage, more smoothly and still free. Worth every km, and besides being the second highest point in the State.
