Pireneus state park, Pirenopolis
(4.3/5 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.

  • Very nice Park and preserved, but lack security and signaling. The Park is huge and so need more signs, and announcements. Some abandoned houses and no safety or tourist information. However, it's worth the trip for the beauty of nature and the ascent to the peak.

  • It was an incredible experience. I did in the morning, only to enjoy the trail. Despite the heat, is very worthwhile. But I recommend hiring a local guide because there is no warning and can be dangerous without someone who knows the place.
