Approximately at 08: 15h departure to Jalapao. (180 km to Puente Alto). On the way we will pass in the district of Taquaruçu, one of the tourist poles of the capital. Lunch in the city of Ponte Alta. Stop at Cânion da Suçuapara, a true oasis, very refreshing (short track with descent and steep climb on firm terrain of gravel and dirt - approximately 400 m round trip). At the access to the canyon, short walk in the water and on stones. We then continue towards the mysterious Sierra de la Muriçoca, where on the way we will cross the springs of the Red River bordering the western part of the Sierra General de Tocantins Ecological Station. At the top of the mountain, you can see the vastness of Jalapão and we can identify the Sierra de la Jalapinha, the Serra do Espírito Santo and further on the horizon the Sierra General de la Bahía. At the end of the day arrival at Camp Korubo Safari (120 km), located on the banks of the Novo River. After a welcome drink dinner is served.
Our recommendation is very early to go to the Mirador del Safari Camp to appreciate the sunrise behind the beautiful Serra do Espírito Santo and from there it is also possible to use the terrestrial telescope to see the mountain ranges around it and the cliffs that form the Dunes of Jalapão. After the delicious breakfast on the banks of the river, instructions will be given to practice canoeing. Departure from the shore of Safari Camp, where we will descend the New River, enjoying nature (approximately 1 hour - easy level). The New River is one of the last rivers of drinking water in the world. Its white sand bottom forms beautiful beaches that, during this tour, invite us at every moment to swim and dive in its pure and crystalline waters, also having a touch of adventure and excitement in its rapids (easy / contemplative level). Lunch in Safari Camp. In the afternoon after a well-deserved rest in Safari Camp, we will make a walk to the Dunes (18 km from Safari Camp to the beginning of the track - easy level). On the way we will pass through the community of the Novo River with a brief stop on the bridge for photos of the river. The dunes are formed by quartz sands of golden coloration and surrounded by trails and lagoons, forming a surrealistic and thriving nature with gigantic cliffs that change color according to the luminosity, giving us a beautiful sunset. Return to our accommodation.
Exit to the hervidero and Formiga Waterfall. The hervideros are springs of crystalline waters and with bottom of white sand. Due to the pressure of the water that is born it is impossible to sink, and we will have the sensation that we really float in its waters; It's pure fun. On the way we will cross the Valle del Río Negro, between Serras do Meio and Espírito Santo. Next to the left will be the Jalapão State Park, and on the other, the eastern part of the Sierra General Ecological Station, which together help to form the largest mosaic of protected areas in the Brazilian cerrado. This route is rich in views and this invites travelers to position themselves in the windows of the vehicles to feel the pure air appreciating the landscape, and take pictures. We arrive at the Fervedouro del Sonido - Korubo exclusivity (75 km), in the place it is possible to take a bath in the waters of the Sono river, one of the main tributaries of the Tocantins river, where the ice water contrasts with the hot water of the hive. Depending on availability and time, we can visit the Fervedero del Ceiça- Glorinha (small hot spring with limited capacity). Lunch in a place of
Korubo next to the hive of the Soninho. Departure to Formiga Waterfall (15 km), a fall that forms a natural pool of crystal clear waters and emerald green, a unique experience in Jalapão. Departure for Mateiros (25 km), where you can use the cell phone and buy crafts. Return to our accommodation.
Early in the morning departure to the path of the viewpoint of the Serra do Espírito Santo * (24 km). This wild and mysterious place has a panoramic view of the entire region of Jalapão, where we can also have a notion of how the famous Dunas are formed through water forces. Hike (8 km with steep climb of 800m at the beginning of the track and the rest on flat and firm terrain - medium level, but of great physical wear, only recommended for people in good health and who do physical activities regularly). Return to the Safari Camp for lunch. Rest of afternoon free to enjoy our accommodation and its beautiful surroundings.
Visit to Cachoeira da Velha (70 km). With its imposing falls in the shape of the horseshoe is the largest of Jalapão. After arriving we will arrive at the beach of La Cascada.
