Pireneus state park, Pirenopolis

4.3
#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.

  • One of the temples of the national State of Goiás, the beauty of the Park of the Pyrenees does not match with the deplorable state of the site. Completely abandoned and without maintenance, from the entrance of the Park you realize the abando on the site. A shame the Government do this sort of thing, especially with one of the most beautiful parks in the State. The trash so shockingly bad, filled with filth, shards of glass and packaging. It just shows the incompetence of the State to manage the public thing. There is no logistics as the visitor information center, ambulatory and information cards about trails. In terms of beauty, location is a must in Pirenópolis.

  • We entered the Park to visit the peak of the Pyrenees, we walked a good part on dirt road, and to reach the Peak you need to walk around the back of the rock until you get upstairs. Recommend taking water and cookies, because as is in the middle of the buffer has nothing on back, in the middle of the road even had a personal selling coconut ice cream, but on the way back (we returned around 18:30) had nothing left. Well worth the trip, I felt a little bit closer to heaven, on top of the peak has a chapel, and the scenery is beautiful.

  • The place is beautiful! So deserves more attention from the public authorities. Access is not complicated but there are no signs that facilitates. Some people hire a guide, but if not please explore very can carry out the visit. Following the same road of the reserve of the Abbot road in the Park. The road you can see an incredible rock formation (pictured). The highlight is the gazebo in the Park. The scene the most incredible sunset is a 360 view • the region. Access to the Observatory is not for everyone. The flagged doesn't exist, you arrive at the foot of the Hill and imagine how you're going to get to the top. Explore vera next to where the cars park there are any indication of rising from the Hill. Upstairs a nearly century-old chapel. Watching the sunset is a ritual. Best view!!!!! I highly recommend and return.
