Brazil Travel Packages: Chapada dos Veadeiros

The region of Chapada dos Veadeiros covers the central highlands of Brazil in the state of Goias, about 155 miles (250 kilometers) northeast of Brasília. The national park of the same name was founded in 1961 and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. It lies in the heart of the region and today covers an area of more than 240,000 hectares. Wide plateaus, deep gorges and rocky slopes of the oldest geological formations of the South American continent characterize the landscape. In interaction with water they form numerous waterfalls, natural pools and canyons that invite you to explore. The vegetation of the local Cerrado (Brazilian grasslands) ranges from grassland landscapes with the typical Brazilian pepper trees to dense tropical forest along the rivers. The waterways and especially the headwaters are lined with the typical buriti palms and there are many species of orchids. The animal world also reflects this diversity of habitats. Due to decades of nature conservation, many endangered species are found here. These include nandus, maned wolves, pampas deer, armadillos, anteaters and a rich bird diversity featuring toucans, parrots, macaws, vultures and eagles. Chapada dos Veadeiros is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor tourists. The region around the national park is well developed for tourism, so many of the hikes to the different waterfalls and natural attractions can be done without a guide. The best time to travel would be during the dry season between May and September. During the rainy season, from October to April, heavy rainfall can occur, making visits to the waterfalls impossible or only recommended with a guide. Daily temperatures average between 68 °F (20 °C) and 77 °F (25 °C) year round, although it can be coldest in July.
