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.

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 !!!

Just 40 minutes from downtown Brasilia, Chapada Imperial is a true hiking and diving experience within the Cerrado's original flora and fauna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerrado). Beautiful views, hills, lakes, pits, and waterfalls. You have different options of hiking being the longest one 4 hours (about 4 km/2.5 miles). Even on your way back inside an old truck (fun!) the viewing of the... More
