Chapada is a Brazilian word that means a region of steep cliffs, usually at the edge of a plateau, and it is for these geological formations that Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park is named. With so many of these red, rock formations, panoramic vistas and cascading waterfalls abound. As you explore the park, you will find the dense rain forest gives way suddenly to Cerrado--vast tropical savanna--, and vice versa, like stepping into another world. Explore the park's cave systems, stand at the geographical center of South America, visit the brilliant blue lake which gets its color from microscopic bacteria, or simply enjoy the various flora and fauna, including tropical birds such as macaws and king vultures. A visit to Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chapada dos Guimaraes holiday site to plot your vacation.

  • I took the tour of the seven waterfalls, it is a light walk with good baths that refresh and help to relieve for another walk. The last waterfalls are the most beautiful. The location has some walking options, unfortunately it is only possible to do the morning tours, completing them in the early afternoon. It turns out that in bad mornings you practically lose your day.

  • The part of nature is the Q saves everything there. The park has no adequate structure for: seniors, special needs groups. And it's worse that you get there by the park door and you don't know what it is. The entry into the margin of the MT 251 has no identification, no shoulder for safe return and the official entrance is approximately 1 km. TB is no use to locate alone because it has to pay fee, made in the agencies of the city. The q does not justify the national Park has no nameplate!
