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 !!!

The place is just outside Brasilia, but the roads to get there are so horrible it feels like a journey. Organisation is smooth, the guide knows the names of a couple of trees and waits while adults and kids splash in 2 very nice natural pools. Apart from a couple of lizards I didn't see any animals or birds. Paths... More

This is an absolutely awesome experience! I am not much of a nature person, but hiking and swimming in the waterfalls here was incredible. All of the hikes are guided and it is a great experience for a solo or group activity. The hike is not difficult though there is a lot of going up and down, it is a... More

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
