Series on my trip to CHAPADA DOS VEADEIROS/DEER HUNTERS' MOUNTAIN RANGE - In the State of GOIÁS - one of the four states in the MIDDLE-WESTERN Region of BRAZIL (GOIÁS - GO, TOCANTINS - GO, MATO GROSSO - MT and MATO GROSSO DO SUL - MS) and where DISTRITO FEDERAL/FEDERAL DISTRICT is also located (BRASÍLIA is there too) - from September 17th to 25th, 2011 - #011 !





MUITA ÁGUA E ROCHA NAS CATARATAS DOS COUROS (1) !

LOTS OF WATER AND ROCK IN LEATHERS FALLS (1) !

On September 17th, I took a plane (TAM AIRLINES, using miles) and flew from CAMPINAS/SP to BRASÍLIA/DF, where I spent one entire day.

On September 18th, I took a bus (REAL EXPRESSO) and went up north, to the town of ALTO PARAÍSO DE GOIÁS, the gate to CHAPADA DOS VEADEIROS/DEER HUNTERS' MOUNTAIN RANGE, in the northern region of the STATE OF GOIÁS!

On September 21st, I spent most of the day visiting CATARATAS DOS COUROS/LEATHERS WATERFALLS, a series of waterfalls located in the RIO DOS COUROS/LEATHERS RIVER, inside FAZENDA BOA ESPERANÇA/GOOD HOPE FARM!

It runs from the plateaus of the CHAPADA DOS VEADEIROS/DEER HUNTERS' MOUNTAIN RANGE to the plains of the TOCANTINS VALLEY, through deep canyons!

It's around 55 km away from the town of ALTO PARAÍSO DE GOIÁS (20km on a paved road and 35km on an unpaved road) - Good to have a four wheel drive vehicle, but not essential, specially if visiting the place on the dry season!
When the car stops, one still has to walk some 1,5km until one reaches the river and then one starts walking along the river (which is pretty refreshing, once one can stop here and there for some bathing into the waters or under the falls)!

Falls, rapids, beaches, calm waters, lakes and gorges are part of that trekking!

This picture was taken in the deepest spot we went during the trekking! We spent around 2 hours there, just enjoying the falls and pools! We could have gone a bit deeper, but I wouldn't be able to take my camera with me because it'd be necessary some swimming! And no, it was not possible to go from there to the deep canyon ahead of us...
