Cachoeira do Pinga Reviews
A Cachoeira do Pinga é uma queda d'agua, formada pela junção de fluxos advindos de alguma ou algumas nascentes de água na Serra de Portalegre/RN.

From the municipality of Viçosa, the entrance to the trail that leads to the waterfall is located on the left side, before the first curve that takes the ascent of the mountain itself. Already from the municipality of Portalegre, the entrance is on the right, just after this bend, after a CAERN/RN. Tourists must reduce speed because the input signal is very unobtrusive, enclosed by a gate and a sign. However, there is room to park vehicles on a berm, that of more safety to occupants both in boarding and disembarking. In my observation, the problems become more evident when it enters on the trail, which begins just beyond paved and changes to the natural terrain of the region. Some of the access to the waterfall itself (wooden bridges) feature the natural wear and tear of use and lack of maintenance, I remember that, a few were not 100% stable. However, do not compromise the safety of visitors. Apart from these minor points, I felt the lack of a local guide or someone accredited to oversee and guide the tours for a few factors. A due to the exuberance of flora and fauna (occasionally) appears on the scene, serving a professional in this area to protect these important aspects. The two due to the absence of track signaling, which can hinder the access of someone unfamiliar to the waterfall. Arriving finally at the waterfall, visitors can take advantage of the flow of energy and all the sensations coming from the only perennial waterfall in the State, because even the region facing severe droughts, the waterfall will never dry. Bathing is quite nice with a water that remains with a cold temperature, even near the hottest hours of the day. As is common in waterfalls and cataracts, is formed a pond at the base of the fall, with a deep ideal, because neither is too shallow nor too deep about to cover a child. Aside from these minor drawbacks structural, caused mainly by the neglect of the Municipal Executive that relegates the tourism in the Municipality at the last priority of the Government, I conclude that all those who visit Portalegre must perform the walk to the waterfall of Leaks, which I believe, along with the Terminal Turístico da Bica, a mandatory chart for tourists or visitors from other locations. Finally, and contrary to what I saw in some evaluations of other members, the place is not dangerous, the violence of the city is practically "0", and even in the late afternoon is quiet, as well as the path to the waterfall is short approximately 300 m and without considerable increases.
Localizado na subida da Serra de Portalegre com mata verde e águas de cachoeiras para apreciar e usar. more »Located in the Sierra de Portalegre with woods and green waters of waterfalls to enjoy and use.
Uma nescente de água cristalina na serra, mas para chegar la você enfrenta pontes precarias e ausência total de policiamento, lugar parece perigoso. more »A nescente of crystal clear water in the Sierra, but to get it you face unsound bridges and total absence of policing, place looks dangerous.
Beautiful place. Free admission. Recommend ... Pleasant climate, open public shots. Could have better support structure such as bridges and walkways with better fixation. Availability of garbage collectors. Great for groups or family programs.
Very beautiful place. After entering the trail, we found three wooden bridges a little worn. In rainy season the track gets slippery due to stones. The water, which comes from a spring, always runs on the rocks, even in the dry season. Sometimes the fall of water is only one line of water down the stones.
This place is beautiful! I was in love, the 5 stars I gave, is by nature warm and fuzzy. Now I give 0 stars by the action of man, the trash is part of the landscape, something that repudiation. I ask that visitors have consciousness, respect nature, the garbage that you produced is your! Then take him away, not leave. You are responsible for the destruction that your trash, and if that doesn't bother you, it means that the "human being" is every day worse.
A great place for photos, enjoy nature and feel the fresh air. In addition to the ice water down the waterfall. Amazing!
Wonderful place. But investments by the public authorities.
