Catarata dos Couros
Still unknown to most travelers, the trail to Catarata dos Couros is nothing short of other famous attractions in Chapada dos Veadeiros. The area is still under tourist development and is not explored as National Park itineraries, however, it seems that it will soon become one of the official attractions.
Although a guide is not mandatory, it is recommended for those who are not used to hiking or visiting waterfalls. One of the bathing wells, the one at Cachoeira Almécegas 1000, is known for its whirlpools that can cause accidents and drowning. In the dry season, this risk is very small, but in the rainy season the danger of currents increases. That's why, in some cases, the guide is so important.
