Photographer's Note

Created to preserve the springs of the São Francisco River, the Serra da Canastra National Park has many tall cliffs, where we can admire the beauty of its many beautiful waterfalls. That type of landscape attracts those who like adventure sports, such as rappel, canyoneering, and cascading. The area also has other attractions, all signaled within the perimeter of the Park, and it is possible to get to them by car, on good dirt roads. The District of São Roque de Minas is one of the supporting points for those visiting the Park. There we find the best infrastructure for lodging and restaurants in the area of the Canastra Mountain Ridge. The best time of the year for visitation is from April to October, because the weather is less rainy, facilitating the access to the local attractions and making the rides more pleasant.

There are many beautiful landscapes in the Park. The most sought one are the spring of the São Francisco River and the upper and lower areas of the Casca D’anta waterfall (186m). Also part of the tour are the Rolinho Waterfall, the Garagem de Pedras, from where there is a full view of the Candidos valley; and the Babilônia Mountain Ridge. The place also has archeological sites in its northernmost area. There we can see paintings in the caves, bone needles, stone axes, and primitive pottery.
