TOP 10 LIST – HIGHEST WATERFALLS IN BRAZIL
Brazil has thousands of waterfalls spread over its 12 different basins and at 168 m (551 f) the Itiquira falls in the mid-west state of Goiás – Brazil should make the top 10 list of highest waterfalls in the country. Laying on the Itiquira river (water drops in Tupi native brazilian language), but at the top end of the Itiquira falls lay the lesser known Indaia falls. Though a lot shorter the Indaia falls attract an even number of visitor due to the larger pool which is fit for swimming making it a favourite specially on the scorching hot days.
1 KM WALK – STEEP DESCENT
Saying goes: the higher the waterfall the tougher the trail and with the Indaia falls it’s no different. Strangely, entrance to the falls is charged (R$ 15,00 Reais – per person – in 01/18), and from the parking space till the Indaia falls it’s roughly a 1 km walk – which may seem easy but is actually quite challenging due to the steep steps put in place by the falls administration.
TAKE WATER – SNACKS – ANYTHING ELSE
There’s no service at the Indaia falls so it’s a ‘take all’ situation where you’ll have to measure out how much water and food will be necessary for the outing. Minimum stay should be around a few hours a least so a couple of litres per person should be enough. Fruit and sandwiches are a very good call. Sunblock is a certainty as the sun in the brazilian Cerrado can be merciless, and the falls have suficient shade to go round a few dozen people.
LAST SHOWER AND DINNER BACK IN BRASILIA
The falls close at 5pm so you’ll probably be back in Brasília for a quick last shower before a visit to a cultural center and/or dinner out on the night. Bars and restaurants have a 2 am closing time in Brasilia so you’ll be covered for a night cap.
