  • Very nice and well preserved park, with good infrastructure and location for camping, for those who enjoy. You can walk up to those who are willing to walk a lot or hire jeeps. It has trails and lookers with beautiful views. The waterfalls are also very beautiful, with very cold waters (Brrr!!) and it is also necessary to be careful with the stones that are well slippery.

  • Park with very good maintenance. Thanks to all volunteers working there. If rains, you'll a 4x4 to go up to the peak. Nice camping area. Very good infrastructure with restrooms and signals in all trails.
  • What an amazing trip. Enjoyed the climb from bottom to top and back to bottom.
