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.

  • Park with great preservation of flora and fauna of the Cerrado, with your high point represented by the Peak of the Pyrenees.

  • Going from Brasilia to Pirenópolis, be sure to try the route that passes through within the Park of the Pyrenees, if you have high car. The visual is incredible, although Park entries appear abandoned. Recommend!
