We went to visit this attraction on foot once the paved road ended. We walked for 1 km, and the car could have done it. With rain probably is wise to go by car unless you are in a 4x4. The river/cascata was far smaller...More

Geres mountains are beautiful and this is one of the spots worthwhile. Lush with roads in pretty good condition all around the mountains.

Check first if there is water, if is dried up there is not a big point in comming just for this. Cascada do Tahiti is very close and should always have water.

You have a drive up a winding road then best to park and walk an easy 1km to the waterfall. A very pleasant visit.

The view was breathtaking and the short hike up was more than enjoyable. This is an example of nature's beauty.
