Parque Estadual do Ibitipoca reviews
If you're in Minas Gerais or Rio de Janeiro, I highly recommend a trip to this park. The views are PHENOMENAL! You'll get a great workout with all the hiking. Lots of hiking up and down - you'll... more »
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..... more »
One of the best places to visit while in Minas Gerais. For a pretty accessible price you can pay for a place to stay and eat in a great variety of restaurants at night. It's best to plan 3+ days to visit the whole park. One day for each track. Keep in mind the the best place to visit is a MUST: Janela do Céu. Everyone willing to go there have to keep in mind that it can be a bit challenging. Be prepared to walk 8+ Km mountain up to get to the place. But it's sure worth it.
The park is amazingly beautiful, great choice for camping, enjoy some fresh air, hiking, waterfalls,watching birds and wild life. The sky at night is so full of stars! It's a quite big park and maybe two, three or even four days might be necessary to see everything, but anything u see of it it will worth it! I do recommend it!
