Photographer's Note

Brazil, a place blessed by nature. Right in the heart of this country, in Tocantins, is a natural paradise of unique beauty: the Jalapão, a main route for people who practice eco-tourism and adventure tourism. It is impossible to find equal scenario anywhere in the world.

Jalapão’s region is a place of unending discoveries. Found in full transitional forest, it is dominated by scrubland vegetation similar to the savannahs, where waterfalls, rivers with crystal clear waters, rapids and large plateaus make the landscape.

It is in this scenario where the dunes of golden sand, up to 30 meters high, stand out, giving the place its name: desert of Jalapão. It would be a desert, if Jalapão were not also a paradise of waters and a place where the presence of flowers and exotic animals jumps to the eye. A call for contemplation and adventure.
