  • Getting there requires a bit of fitness, but it's worth it. the waterfall is beautiful. Access not too complicated, but the sign leaves something to be desired.

  • It's kind of amazing that you can hike in a forest and relax under the water of a waterfall in a city known for its beaches. You can reach this one through different trails, it's a good option to have...  more »
  • In the middle of the metropolis is a great escape. On weekends it gets pretty full. The waterfall itself is not up to snuff.

  • É boa quando está vazia de gente, e costuma encher. A trilha é bem sinalizada, mas exige moderado esforço físico. A quantidade de água depende das chuvas. Em períodos de longa estiagem, quase não é possível banhar-se. Há registro de assaltos na trilha e na própria cachoeira, portanto, é importante estar atento e bem informado antes se dirigir a ela. Há risco de queda e de morte, pois as pedras são escorregadias. É importante ter muito cuidado com crianças.
  • Cedae cortou a água
  • Nao isso tudo que falam fui hoje 24/04/2016 e a caminhada nao e nada leve e quando chega lá nao tem poço para mergulho 😭😭😭
  • Trilha fácil, 2 quedas d'Água. A primeira com um poço raso e segunda com a água correndo na pedra.
  • Melhor época do ano é no PERÍODO DE CHUVAS, de Novembro a Março, que "enche" a cachoeira e a deixa muito bonita! Caso contrário, fica uma cascatinha... A trilha é boa, sinalizada e bem fácil de chegar. E faz parte da Trilha Transcarioca. Um lugar tranquilo, agradável em muito contato com a natureza.
