after climbing up on an easy trail you reach this place, and there you can stay sitting close to the abyss, thinking about life and feeding yourself of all the energy of the nature around it.

This is such a stunning place! My husband and I contemplated catching a taxi to the park but instead we went with a company called Canion Turismo which has an agency in Cambara Do Sul.

We drove about 3 hours to see this - it was well worth it. It rained on us for about 20 minutes - but we still enjoyed our stay.

The landscape is breath taking... They are worth the last bumpy kilometers to get there. But you have to be lucky with the weather to get the best views!

There are several trail options to get there, including some that take visitors inside rocky formations. There are also high waterfalls, and long trails for hiking – some of them are more... More

The view of this canyon is great and beautiful. One problem i see is that the park of Serra Geral doesn`t have structure of security, and the road access to get there is in a very bad state of conservation.

A fantastic scenery from the top observation platforms, overseeing a large portion of the Aparados da Serra National Park, with its lush vegetation, deep rock walls. A must in any trip to the South of Brazil
