Impressive view!

The landscape surprises you all the time because the rock shapes change. The water finds it´s way in between rocks creating an amazing scenario.

The geologic background of this area gives it a crater like look, which is definitely fascinating to see. You can find this place close to the town Alto Paraiso. You need to pay a small fee to see it. When it rains, take very good care because the rocks get slippery. Bring swimwear too because there are two nice natural... More

My mum contacted a great guide called Eduardo, who created a bespoke holiday for the 5 of us including various amazing waterfalls, trails that suited the family in general taking into consideration the...

Well, it took a long time to get there, but it was certainly worth it. It's a two-hour drive from Alto Paraiso - a lot of which is over a bumpy dirt road - and then a long walk to reach this beautiful place to swim. But warning: the water is frigid! But after the hot, dry hike, it didn't... More

I suggest you to go with tenis. The view there is amazing and you can take a lot of pictures. There you have to pay 20 reais to... More

The place involves a 15 minute walk down a signed path to the river which carves through some remarkable volcanic rock deposits. The place is privately owned and costs 20 BRL per person to enter. The rock formations are unlike anything else I've ever seen - very hard volcanic rocks, with great curves where the river has cut through. Everybody... More

You'll face a easy trail and after you arrive in a beautiful place. I don't remember how much paid but I'm sure it was cheap.
