A day-trip to Serra do Cipó!

Very close to Belo Horizonte there’s a place called Serra do Cipó, which is like a small mountain range with many waterfalls throughout the entire area of the park, where people go camping or just for the day.

The park is super protected, so people have to leave the car at the entrance and walk everywhere. And by walking I don’t mean just a few meters, on the contrary, you have to walk and walk forever.

We went to Cachueira da Farofa. To get there, it’s an 8 kms walk, plus another 8kms to come back. It was really hot and the track was very very muddy and full of puddle. But it was ABSOLUTELY worth it!!

I’ll have to go back and check out the other waterfalls!
