It was a walking distance from where we stayed. It is really a peaceful place. You can swim in the cold water or receive beautiful sunshine on the rocks if you are brave you can even jump into cold water.

There are a few falls at this place, and whilst not the best in the area, are pretty good when done alongside the other activities on the farm (zipline, horse riding etc). The restaurant is overpriced so I recommend taking a picnic.

I've seen better in the area, this is why Sao Bento falls is not one of the best. But it is a 300 m trail that can be done without a hitch.

Despite the ease access, the waterfall is not worth. There is not enough spots for relaxing and the water seems dirty.

A small waterfall located on the road between Alto Paraíso and São Jorge, with only 300 meters walk. Great for cold bath.

Compared to others in Chapada dos Veadeiros, this waterfall is not very impressive. Pleasant, nevertheless. And easier to access.

Small beautiful waterfall with good swimming and rocks to jump off. Not as large or breathtaking as some of the others but a fun place to swim.

Nice waterfall with extremely easy access from a car park nearby. Perfect for a dip and to cool off. You can combine a Zip-Line of 850m nearby within the same farm (Fazenda São Bento).
