Raizama waterfall, Alto Paraiso de Goias

#9 of 19 in Parks in Alto Paraiso de Goias
Part of a 1.8-billion-year-old plateau, Raizama waterfall is one of dozens of waterfalls cascading over ancient rock formations. The water cuts so deeply into these rocks that large canyons have formed ages ago. Modern visitors often use them as diving platforms. You can jump in for a cool swim, or choose to rappel down these age-old stone walls. The trail is steep, with wooden stairs and handrails, but it’s worth the effort to see vegetation of rare jungle plants, such as 25 different species of orchids. Birds also thrive here, and you can spot and hear them flying right over your head as you climb the trail leading up to the waterfalls.

  • This waterfall is beyond Sao Jorge. We walked it from Sao Jorge as a day trip, but driving would make more sense if you have a car. The trail is a well marked path to a series of small waterfalls...  more »
