The Chapada dos Guimarães National Park, located in the state of Mato Grosso, occupies a central position in South America's geodesic center, directly in the middle of both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Accessible from the city of Cuiabá via a scenic 70 km drive, the park was established in 1989 and is a crucial component of the significant environmental conservation area spanning the swampy and tropical savanna regions of Brazil.

The park's already magnificent nature and geographical location were further enhanced by the discovery of archaeological treasures, including dinosaur bones from the Jurassic period, as well as cave paintings and inscriptions made by ancient ancestors of the American people, which have been identified in dozens of sites.

The Park offers picturesque scenery that harmoniously combines majestic waterfalls, imposing rock formations, and scenic trails meandering through the characteristic vegetation of the tropical savanna, all of which captivate visitors with their mesmerizing beauty. One of the most impressive attractions in the park is the Véu da Noiva waterfall, which stands at a towering height of 85 meters and offers breathtaking panoramic views, surrounded by an imposing granite rock wall which has an unusual orange coloring which adds to the surrounding.

If you’re feeling physically prepared, hiking up to Morro de San Jerónimo, the highest peak in the region with an altitude of 836 meters, should be included in your day plans. The roundtrip hike takes about seven hours of walking and climbing, but the effort is worth it when considering the stunning wide range view from the top.
Chapada dos Guimarães is the perfect destination for those seeking an adventurous experience in full contact with nature.
