Easy day trip from Brasilia. Other did the falls which are nice. You can also Climb up to the ridge to see the top of the falls...rock rubble sand for the first steep 350 meters. There are ropes to help when pulling up or controlling the down. Then 1200 meters more on the ridge line. Allow at least a couple... More

Beautiful, beautiful waterfall and stream system. Not a dificult hike at all (very short with limited obstacles) Great place to spend the day enjoying nature, have a picnic, swim (If you don't mind the cold water)

More than 120 meters high, in the setting of a perfectly kept park, the foggy waterfall is not an adventure at all but is a pleasure for the senses. The bottom is very easy to reach. If you feel strong and adventurous, follow the trek to the top for the ultimate view! Before leaving, enjoy a recovering bath on the... More

We went there as a large group, some of us camped, some of them went to the Pousada section... Either way you cannot go wrong! Heated pools, fishing, zip lining, horesback riding, trails to waterfalls!!! We have been there 5 times last year alone!!! There are 2 zones, a "party zone" and a "quiet zone" if you wanna a good...

This waterfall is def worth the visit! A short drive from Brasilia. You can enjoy the waterfall or go for a hike and get a view from the top!

We took a day trip from Brasilia to Itiquira falls which took us two hours to drive. There are lots of cameras and speed bumps (moles) so you can't drive fast. Thankfully the roads are paved and the Garmin took us right to the entrance to the falls. You pass orange groves and can buy 25+ lb bags or juicing... More

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
