Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros, Alto Paraiso de Goias

4.8
#1 of 117 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.

  • Beautiful place! I highly recommend a visit to this park. The trails are clearly marked and the park staff is very helpful. The trail to the Saltos (yellow trail) is of moderate difficulty with gorgeous views and some very nice places to swim in the Black River near falls. Some of the trails are wheelchair accessible. More information about accessibility is available in the visitor center at the park entrance.
  • Amazing hikes views and waterfalls! This ppace is so entertaining especially if you're from the northern hemisphere, new plants and species you'd never encounter. I'm just sorry I couldn't spend more than 3 days there, we didn't have time time to see nearly enough. I'm definitely coming back.
