Chapada dos Guimaraes

Have arrived at Chapada dos Guimaraes, a vast plateau that rises 700 metres above the surrounding green bushland and forests like a stage. There isn´t much in the way of human performances (a tranquil, relaxed town), but the natural spectacles are fantastic. Stones carved in amazing shapes by the weather, rich-red crumbling cliffs, waterfalls galore, and at dusk lightning shows all along the horizon.

Have put some photos up from a day out today. Click on the photo above to enter the gallery.

    Great posts. Question: I’m assuming you got to Chapada dos Guimaraes by bus — how did you get from the town to the park and other sites? Is there a local bus that goes to park? Do you know if mopeds can be rented there?
