    Nice place and Nice, but there's not much to do. Don't nominate too to go with child because of the rocks that are a little high, it is kind of dangerous.

    It's worth checking out the arrangements of nature, a stone inesplicavel on top of another like a balloon made by force of nature thousands of years

    I loved it and I was surprised with the natural beauty of the place, a place of great peace and tranquility. Ideal to reflect on life, take some pictures and enjoy the nature.

    It is more difficult to reach than climbing on rock. The access is done by car. And climb up the stone Balloon just follow a path of Red Earth beat with some steps, climb some rocks, climb a ladder and ready, you're on top of the stone balloon. The place has a beautiful view. I went early in the morning, some 8:30 had mt fog, wind and the sawmill, what ended up making more leverage. Worth going to!

    Place of difficult access to who is on foot, the stone balloon by itself isn't worth the ride, but the site offers other types of attraction, such as horseback riding and zip line

    Beautiful, but much changed by the hand of man. Natural has only the same stone, the rest and more eucalyptus eucalyptus ...
