Pireneus state park, Pirenopolis

4.2
#6 of 8 in Nature in Pirenopolis
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.

    Visit the State Park of the Pyrenees, and enjoy, on the way to the peak of the Pyrenees, a stop at mini city of rocks (rocks), and your quartz rock formation is dated from the Precambrian period, around 1 billion years ago, testimony of distant geological eras. If you don't want to go in a car, use the guide service, for the tour of the sunset, in the peak and more the ride in this mini city. Browse Fábio da Akihiko, for information. The car that takes is a Uno Vivace, with air. his job and Hired was instructive.

    Beautiful view! Need to walk about 18 km by dirt road, but it's not too bad on the road. Coming upstairs, there's a parking lot and a trail of about 15 minutes up the Hill to view up to nine cities. Is wonderful ... well worth staying to watch the sunset.
