If you are ever in the Alto Paraiso are you must visit these falls. Many of the review say you need a 4x4 but we drove there in or normal car and as long as you are careful you will be fine, it was even raining hard on our return and the road was flooded but we were still fine.... More

If you consider both the canyon trail along the river and the bath itself that the waterfalls provide, you will have indeed one of the best experiences in Chapada dos Veadeiros. In my short stay visiting some of the most famous trails and waterfalls, I'd say Couros is the most beautiful.

We hired Oleg (61) 9 9841-7177 or (62) 9 8219-2184 arararte@yahoo.ca. Wonderful guide. He paced our trip just for us, knows all the best spots, and what time of day to visit. He speaks Russian, English, Spanish, and Portuguese. We rented a car in Brasilia via Rentalcars.com Budget/Avis. Great service. very affordable. IPhone maps were best. Google maps and our... More

Its a little bit hard to get to the beggining of the trail whitout a local guide, because there are no signs in the road. But once you get there, the track isnt hard. You can find several good waterfalls, with loots of water and pools were you can dive and jump. The water is very clean and you fill... More

I visited in January and the night before there was a strong rain. The place is much mire interesting when the river is full, I was able to see a beautiful waterfall. The trekking is ease to moderate, with roughly 6km of extension. Although it is possible to swim, the area for this activity is very restricted, as the fall... More

A local guide is recommended for this trail because it is not as well signposted as others at Chapada. It is really pretty and certainly worth the effort. Besides the guide will give you tips on where should you go to see pretty landscapes and more importantly where you must not go. The water gets really dangerous around this big... More

Wow, on a sunny day, this is a fabulous day out. You need a 4X4 to get here as the road is 50km bumpy. You also MUST KNOW EXACTLY where you are going. We had a guide and all went really smoothly. Many wonderful views on the way. Many waterfalls as well not just the main one. Your trek may... More

1.5 hour drive from downtown Alto Paraiso. If you do not have a car, you do need to book a tour. If you are driving, you can get here with your car, no 4WD needed, though some care requered. I saw two guys stuck half way there. Also, no guide needed if driving by yourself. You can find your way... More
