  • I've been in the cave Earth Snore (one of several other existing in the Parque Estadual da Terra Ronca, in São Domingos-Goiás), on 5 August this year. Coming from Brasilia towards Santo Domingo, passing by the BR 020 as soon as it enters the State of Bahia have the huge cotton plantation fields, as far as the eye can see. Little, or hardly any native vegetation can be seen. Dozens of kilometers after, in the same BR 020, enters on the left bound for San Domingo and the landscape changes completely. The Serra Geral (sandstone) dominates the way kilometers surrounded by Bushland and the footpaths, in a spectacular beauty. Morro do Moleque, postcard of São Domingos, soon emerges. Arriving in São Domingos, quiet and friendly city, it was just the period of guarantee hosting at a hotel and I headed for the cave Earth Snore, where I was going on the Pilgrimage of Bom Jesus da Lapa, facing for 53 km an unpaved road with bad stretches, loose rocks and pointed, sometimes gritty and almost always with a lot of rib. Getting there I came across a lot of precarious shacks, covered with sheets of buriti or canvas and where they sell all kinds of food. All this contaminated by dust raised by wind, by passing cars or by horses that came of a ride or by lack of hygiene. Water to prepare food and wash pots and other utensils was caught from the river where humans and horses if washed or cleaned. Other than that, since I didn't have the stomach for any gastronomic incursion, the cave on Earth Snore is huge and has a stunning beauty. Access was made easier with the construction of walkways and railings and chains. Its huge entry allows if down by hundreds of meters without the need of lighting. It is a pity that the people who go there this time of year, motivated by a party that would be religious, if in excess, causing so much noise and commotion, forgetting, above all, too, which are in an area of environmental preservation. Not that there is collusion of State and municipal bodies, but rather by the lack of education of most of who there this time of year. The party occurs there for almost 100 years, when neither thought it would become a State Park.

  • A park still kind of unknown and unexplored. I'm glad rustic. Access out of asphalt. Few and simple guesthouses. Good guides. Set of spectacular caves as the Snores and 1 2, Saint Bernard and the difficult St. Matthew. For those who enjoy Spelunking. I was surprised. Beautiful walks. It's worth it!

  • Are 5 caves open to visitation officially. Hundreds of caves at the site. Go with a guide, which can be indicated by the Inn of choice. Take snacks; There are no restaurants or pharmacies so close (we ate at the Inn). I went with a nice sandals, I thought it best that wet sneakers (most major caves involve entering the water of the river inside the cave). There are mosquitoes. Head flashlight we take, but had to rent with our guide. Caves, waterfalls, starry sky and food from the farm. Really a must and so close to Brasilia.
