One of the most beautiful waterfalls that you will find in Brazil, nice view from the road while arriving and the water spray near the pool where the water goes just feels great when the day is hot, take your camera or cellphone waterproof case and prepare yourself to get wet.

It's near from Brasília about 1 hour by car. You should pay about R$ 10 and enjoy a nice place. If you want, you might face a trail and see the waterfall from above.

Me and three friends travelled from Brasília to Salto de Itiquira, guided for a local friend who knew the region. What an amazing and relaxing day! Perfect pause from the urban life found in Brasília-DF. It was a Monday, so there was almost no one in the way to the park nor in the park/waterfall. It seemed to be a... More

More than 120 meters high, in the setting of a perfectly kept park, the foggy waterfall is not an adventure at all but is a pleasure for the senses. The bottom is very easy to reach. If you feel strong and adventurous, follow the trek to the top for the ultimate view! Before leaving, enjoy a recovering bath on the... More
