And go down the steps. They are officially closed but its easy enough to jump over the barriers and head down to the base of the waterfall. Its a bit of a hike though so only if you aint a couch potato.

You take an astonishingly beautiful waterfall, and create all sorts of trails, restaurants, panoramic towers, cable carts. From my point of view, you loose the natural wonder it represents.

Really beautiful Araucaria forest with paved trails and lookout and a great watch tower with elevator, but also small forest trails- 'silent trail'; food available

A small park to know in some minutes. Staps of acsess are closed now. You have to pay R$18,00. Would be better and more explored.

This is a place to have an unforgettable view. Place to have a lot of photos with your family. The price is not so cheap but worth it.

Price is not adequate for the place, even if the landscape is beautiful. I won't recommend going there to anyone.

At 18 BR real per person to go in, you wouldn't expect to have to pay another 24 BR real to go up a tower for a full view of the park. Map given at entrance is useless as most tracks aren't actually there. Steps to go down see the waterfalls and the so-called "historic centre" are free, but closed.

Can even say how amazing we all felt during (and after!) our visit to this park! The falls, the scenery, the smell, everything was a bless! Make sure to wear comfortable shoes because it's a great walk! We didn't want to leave! Amazing, well maintained, so clean! On your way out, stop for some "quentao" (hot delicious wine!) to close...

The park is so gorgeus... also, there is this magestic waterfall, take care if you dont have a stamina, because you will need a lot of it to take the star again... it is a hard one, and usually the lift isnot working.

The falls are gorgeous, the place is beautiful... but I was a little disappointed for the fact they don't accept credit or debt cards anywhere of the attraction. You can't pay the entry fee with card, you can't pay the panoramic tower attraction with a card, or buy souvenirs.... a little frustrating in my opinion. But the falls are worth... More
