  • As the day was closed, I made the water route and reached some caves on the way to the window of heaven. I was surprised by the Cachoeira dos Macacos and the Stone Bridge, I had no idea it would be so beautiful. The landscape in general is quite beautiful by the height of the park.

  • 3rd Best Park in Latin America. With almost 1,500 hectares of remaining Atlantic forest, the conservation unit is one of the most visited in the state of Minas Gerais

  • One of the best places to visit while in Minas Gerais. For a pretty accessible price you can pay for a place to stay and eat in a great variety of restaurants at night. It's best to plan 3+ days to visit the whole park. One day for each track. Keep in mind the the best place to visit is a MUST: Janela do Céu. Everyone willing to go there have to keep in mind that it can be a bit challenging. Be prepared to walk 8+ Km mountain up to get to the place. But it's sure worth it.
  • The park is amazingly beautiful, great choice for camping, enjoy some fresh air, hiking, waterfalls,watching birds and wild life. The sky at night is so full of stars! It's a quite big park and maybe two, three or even four days might be necessary to see everything, but anything u see of it it will worth it! I do recommend it!
