I've been there three times and it's always fascinating!! I went through the path on the hill to get to the top and it's completely beautiful... we sure feel small when we take a nice look around from the top. It's a hard path (2km if I'm not mistaken) and you'll need at least 4 hours to do it (to... More

I would recommend to go to Itiquira , with family and friends, to get to know the tallest waterfall in South America. However the park only covers the lower part of the waterfall, the peak has an unbelievable site and it is reachable through land roads, there you can sit on the rock at the edge of the waterfall and...

We were travelling from Brasilia to Sao Jorge (to see the Chapada dos Veadeiros) and we did a little detour along the way to visit Itiquira Falls. Our guide for the Chapada commented that it is very unusual for international tourists to ask to visit Itiquira Falls along the way; everyone else seems to do it as a 'there and... More

Excelent. The landscape is breathtaking. Everything works properly. Clean, beautiful, really nice. Just try to avoid the crowd in the weekends, but even that isn't so bad, because they have a limit of visitors each day.

We visited Brasilia and decided to drive to the national park one day. I really enjoyed the drive through the countryside. The national park is small with beautiful waterfall. Worth visiting. When you go take your swimming suit with you. You can have a nice dip in a pool lower down.

Though I'm still suffering a little from my excessive courage of diving into the really cold waters of the Itiquira river. I see some people have already pointed out, very fairly, that if you have some time to drive out of Brasília for at least 1h30min one way (in other words, at least 3hs of travel), this is a very...

Some say, if you have seen one waterfall, you have seen all. I beg to differ - Itiquira is worth a visit if you have half a day to spare. The area is beautiful and the waterfall is amazing

Really: this is one incredible waterfall. It is listed as among the 10 highest in Brazil and it sure is one with excelent access and structure. If you are into waterfalls, rivers and just lazying around, you can't miss it. On the downside, it must be noted that the municipality charges a staggering R$ 18 for entrance (the world famous...

I would have rated it 2 stars if it were just for going into the park to see the waterfalls, but the hike up is just incredible. Very few people do it and it is quite tough. You will need proper hiking booths. There is a trail, but in parts you will need to pull yourself up by the roots... More

It is a beatiful and huge waterfall, but that is it. There is a park around it, but It is not that nice.
