Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Guimaraes, Chapada dos Guimaraes

Must see · National Park · Nature / Park
Chapada is a Brazilian word that means a region of steep cliffs, usually at the edge of a plateau, and it is for these geological formations that Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Guimaraes is named. With so many of these red, rock formations, panoramic vistas and cascading waterfalls abound. As you explore the park, you will find the dense rain forest gives way suddenly to Cerrado--vast tropical savanna--, and vice versa, like stepping into another world. Explore the park's cave systems, stand at the geographical center of South America, visit the brilliant blue lake which gets its color from microscopic bacteria, or simply enjoy the various flora and fauna, including tropical birds such as macaws and king vultures. A visit to Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Guimaraes represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chapada dos Guimaraes holiday site to plot your vacation.
