Description

ENGLISH AND PORTUGUESE

EN - The trail can be split into two parts: Getting to the river and along the river. The first is very easy and calm, the path is well defined and the terrain quite constant with some places with mud. The track ends when it reaches the river where the second part begins, which takes us to the base of the waterfall. Along the river, the trail becomes harder and harder, it is necessary to climb some rock formations using the tree roots to help. Be careful the rocks are very slippery, especially when getting closer to the waterfall. When you reach the end, enjoy the view, take a breath and be ready to do the way back. Have fun.

PT - A trilha pode ser divida em duas partes: Acesso ao rio e ao longo do rio. A primeira parte é muito tranquila, o caminho é bem definido e o terreno uniforme com alguns lugares com lama, pode ser considerado fácil. O trajeto termina no encontro com um rio, onde começa a segunda parte, que leva até a base da cachoeira. Ao longo do rio o percurso passa a ser difícil, É necessário subir grandes lances de pedras, usando as raízes para ter apoio. O caminho das pedras é bem liso e deve ser feito com muito cuidado. Quando chegar ao fim, aproveite a vista, respire e esteja preparado para o caminho de volta.
