#9 of 27 in Nature in State of Ceara
National Park Nature / Park
The smallest of the 35 national parks of Brazil, covering an area of 5.63 km², the greatest treasure of the Ubajara National Park, in the state of Ceará, is the Ubajara grotto. Set in a hillside in the Ibiapaba Mountains, 320 kilometres from Fortaleza, the grotto has impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations, the result of nature's patient work with limestone and water over many thousands of years - each centimetre of crystallised growth takes three years to form.Access to the grotto is by a chairlift. The park has waterfalls and paths through the forest. Visits are supervised by Ibama, the national body for environmental conservation, and must be arranged in advance. Other attractions in the Ibiapaba mountains include Morro do Céu, 820 metres high, and Pedra de Itagurussu, the source of the Pirangi waterfall.

  • An amanzing place to spend some time. Waterfalls facing cliffs and awesome nature down below. It is possible to visit a cave using a cable car.  more »
  • The wonderful bustrip from Camocim to Ubajara was magical and a grand scenary of nature. Everywhere you saw big sugarloaf mountains with a beautiful and untouched nature that caught the eye. Arriving ...  more »
  • The place is beautiful and has arrangements for tours. You can do the ' roadmap ', if it has not been prepared to make the trails. The entrance of the historic road map is 5.00 dollars. The ' roadmap ' is nothing more than knowing the park entrance up to the cable car. In the middle of the small path has a space that tells the history of the site, the legends and sells handicrafts in wood. The cable car has been parked for two years and has claim to reopen in the middle of the year to 2018/2019. Currently access is only by waterfalls trail and one of them has guided tree climbing. Recommend going prepared to walk, take or buy water and wear sneakers. In case you are interested, I recommend take a bathing suit. If the trails, go by the day shift. Most of them only is made in the morning. The site has a deli that sells water, soda, water, juice, cookies, salty etc. and on site also has bathroom.

  • Great site for adventure. Do the Fern trail to the cave was an unforgettable day. Great memories. Recommend taking water, wear light clothes, a good pair of sneakers and cereal bars. The guides are very helpful. The tram is not in operation. Then you must have a lot of willingness to make the full journey.

  • Now that it's under the tutelage of the Chico Mendes Institute for biodiversity conservation (ICMBio) the site is another, in the historical centre you can learn a little more about the story not only of the Serra Grande, but also of Ceará. The tracks are worth a lot, at least the shortest (Trilha da Gameleira) that leads to an amazing lookout overlooking four waterfalls.
