Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Goias / Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park / Alto Paraiso de Goias / Raizama waterfall
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. Take a look at our Alto Paraiso de Goias tour planner to schedule your visit to Raizama waterfall and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
