Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall, Visconde de Maua

4.7
#4 of 11 in Things to do in Visconde de Maua
Hidden deep in the lush Vale do Pavão, Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall is at the end of a difficult but scenic trail roughly 3 km (1.9 miles) long. You will know your efforts were worthwhile when, emerging from the undergrowth, you catch your first sight of the beautiful waterfall. The crystal-clear pool, green from the reflection of the surrounding forest, is cold but refreshing, and after diving in, you can bask in the sun on the large boulders at the water’s edge; the only sounds you will hear are the gentle rush of water and melodious birdsong. Our Visconde de Maua trip itinerary planner makes visiting Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall and other Visconde de Maua attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    After much bubbling-about 9 km of Earth and stone, in a car or an SUV 4 x 4 high-by a narrow road and surrounded by native forest of serra da Mantiqueira, high up in the Valley of the Peacock, is this fantastic waterfall and a breath-taking of any a. The trail is of average difficulty, in pós-chuva days can be a little dangerous because it is slippery. But it can be done with caution because the reward is guaranteed.

    The Hornet is beautiful, but I can only highlight the entire walk through the Valley of the Peacock. The dirt road is pretty bad, in addition to being very steep, so it's worth hiring a 4 x 4 or ATV. Other than that, the look is spectacular! The Valley is wonderful, with viewpoints and, in the end, still has the Hornet shaft, with its emerald waters!

    I visited the Hornet in the first time I went to Mauá, was the first place I went and I haven't seen anything in the same beauty, worth every effort to get there.
