Pireneus state park, Pirenopolis
(4.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Many years ago I frequent the Park, mainly cycling. There's quietest routes and climbs well steep for those who like mountain biking. The fact of having several waterfalls on the way, rivers, makes it a very pleasant experience riding in the Park and cool off in the rivers and waterfalls.

  • We arrived in Pirenópolis in the Park. In Cocalzinho de Goias Cup we enter to the right and we access the Park. There is an abandoned guardhouse. The look is beautiful. We try to have lunch at a hotel on the road but there was no lunch although the Board. What saved us was the Abbot falls that has a great infrastructure and a la carte lunch. We made our request and we went down to the falls, we took advantage and our lunch was nearly ready.
