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.

  • The Park is clean, with a wonderful waterfall, with several waterfalls and natural pools. You don't have to pay to get in, which is not possible in the other waterfalls. Beyond the peak of 30000 meters above the sea which has a vista radiant and a chapel way up high. Stories and more stories told by Fabio, which was pretty cool.

  • Did the crossing of Cocalzinho de Goiás to Pirenópolis inside the Park. The sunset across the trail that goes to the peak of the Pyrenees and the Hairy Hill is wonderful, with a reddish tone and a splendid sky. The road is a little tricky on descents and ascents, but with way way to do the opposite path (Pirenópolis to Cocalzinho). We spotted several wild animals during the escalating blocks within the Park.

  • Beautiful park located in the city of Pirenopolis. Very nice, but needs better conservation. Access is by a dirt road, with some bad stretches, but most access is good. Lack any guidance about the attractions
