Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.9
#1 of 116 in Parks in State of Goias
Gorges that call to you with the sweet sound of a shallow river and eye-popping waterfalls that drown the river out with their powerful descent; all of it is at Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros. This is also the home of Moon Valley with its scooped rock formations that create natural water slides. In fact, UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage Site in 2001, so the 1.8 billion year old forest will be protected for all time. The protected land hosts thousands of visitors each year, but the wilderness is expansive enough that you may never see them. Wear your best hiking shoes, a pair that handle both dirt paths and rocky passages, and bring snacks and water for the trek. Consider shacking up in nearby Sao Jorge where the inns are simple and clean, and the locals are friendly.

  • We split the park in two days... Were incredible moments, absorbing with our guide many knowledge of geology, biology and botany., valuable fatigue.

  • I'm glad we know how to thank and preserve what's good for us. The park has unique flora and vegetation, as well as waterfalls. It is considered a natural patrimony of mankind. Tourists from various regions of Brazil. I met 2 Waterfalls: Carioquinhas and Caniôns 2. The trail was 11km, round trip. Hard trail because there's a lot of rock with go up and down. Quite tirative. But contact with nature is unique. You don't pay to get in. Watch a demo video before accessing the track. I need to fill in the form. Glad I met you.

  • Amazing waterfalls, wonderfull landscapes. A unique place. Safe path. Strange stones.
  • Amazing national Park! Before going it's important to check the weather. I went on a dry season (July)..the smaller waterfalls we're almost dry... however in the rainy season sometimes make the hiking difficult!
