Chapada dos Veadeiros

Surrounded by mountains and the untouched beauty of the Brazilian savanna, lays this place adored by many including the mystics. Chapada dos Veadeiros is cut by the parallel 14 the same as Machu Picchu, the sacred city of the Incas, in Peru. Rock crystals laying on the ground, beautiful waterfalls and the trails it bares, the scenery reaches mythical proportions. At the highest point of the central part of Brazil, sets the national park Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros and a 390 feet drop waterfall hidden a few hours inside the trail. Chapada dos Veadeiros, which roughly translates to deer hunters´ plateau, is now a protected area, home to more than 25 varieties of orchids, macaws, toucans, armadillos, anteaters, tapirs, wolves, and the nowadays rare deer. Only a 3 hour drive from Brasília sets you apart from this adventure.
