Really worth a while

Hikes for all the needs, from easy ones to some which demand more time, but even those are easily accesible and great waterfalls and 'baths'.

This natural reserve is not too far from Brasilia, and has several waterfalls. The tour takes a few hours, of not so difficult hiking. After your day, you will enjoy an okay meal. Close to the eating place, there are good canopy tours, included in the package.

You walk with a guide and have an unhurried trail to follow, stopping at beautiful waterfalls with wonderful views in the high savannah near Brasilia. Then a traditional lunch and more swimming if you want.

Best sight in Brasilia. The best part is swimming in 5 waterfalls. The water is warm but not two warm, the pools have areas for all ages and swimming ability, you can even canyoning a bit. I would say due to the hiking between pools I would recommend minimum age of 6 but if your child likes swimming a lot... More

Visited with a tour group of 20. The access roads deteriorated the nearer we got to Chapada Imperial and although our bus journey was about an hour, it seemed longer. However, the journey is well worth it as the 3 hour walk, partly along side the stream was very enjoyable and not strenuous. Our guides swam in the pools at... More

good site, with great nature, forest and nearby to the city, only thing is that prices are to high considering it a natural site without big investment by the owner

WE hiked for half a day and swam in 5 different waterfalls. This place is gorgeous and the guides are friendly and helpful. The "lunch" (or pre dinner as we had it at 4 in the afternoon) is pretty basic with rice, beans, salad but was exactly what we needed after the hike.

Very clean water, the waterfalls are great and walking is not stenous.. What I disliked - The food is average.. Too simple really but when you come back from a long walk it will be ok ! It was a really good time spent there.

While visiting some friends in Brasilia with my kids and friend we've decide to hike on the Chapada Imperial trails and enjoy the Cerrado of central Brasil. First the drive is short from Brasilia, some nice unpaved roads to arrive to the place and once there it was incredible. An Ara flew and land on the car top and welcome... More

Highley recommended, I went on the full tour which takes in about 15 waterfalls and they are all great, take your swimming costume because you can go for a swim in some of them. The walk back however is very hard and all uphill so be prepared !!!
