You'll find great trails, beautiful views of the valley, caves, and the infamous Janela do Céu (Window to Heaven waterfall). Worth a day trip, at the very least. The weather can change drastically in the mountains - so check the forecast before you go!

This is a great park. One day is not enought to visit all the trails that the park offers. A lot off watterfalls, caverns, nature and beauty. The longest trip takes almost a day! Be prepared with sunscreen and clothes :)

The best place for ecotourism. A must go travel for those who enjoy walking offroad. Yes, you walk a lot in this park, but the waterfalls, the beautiful landscapes you'll see compensate your effort

Yes, Take a bus from Rio to Juiz de Fora. And them, another from Juiz de Fora to Lima Duarte. In Lima Duarte you get transportation to the park.
