Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Goias / Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park / Alto Paraiso de Goias / Catarata dos Couros
With several waterfalls located in one place, Catarata dos Couros is the perfect way to spend the day, swimming and hiking. It is best to hire a guide since the trail is not marked well and you will learn so much more about the beautiful flora and fauna in this way. To reach the falls, there is a dirt road of about 30 km (18.6 mi) long. The trail itself is only 2.5 km (1.5 mi) and quite rocky so it is wise to wear hiking boots. The water is not too cold so you can take a refreshing and comfortable swim in the river. At the bottom, there is a large drop to the right and two natural pools also great for bathing. On the left side, there are two more beautiful falls and incredible views of the canyon. You can walk most of the route bordering the river, which reveals various landscapes alternating between river rocks, waterfalls, and canyons. All in all, there is much to take in at Catarata dos Couros.
