BELO HORIZONTE is the capital of Minas Gerais state.
All i saw from Belo Horizonte was the airport but from there we took an eco-trip to one of the most fantastic areas in Brazil-SERRA DO CIPO!
Take a look!
Carrancas is located in the south of Minas Gerais,about 400km from Rio.
The ecotourism here is a must,with about 50 cascades and small waterfalls,and the famous industry of goat cheese,a delicious and my favourite cheese,the best one is certainly from this region,and it's rare to find it in Rio or Porto Alegre(usually only in vegetarians grocery stores,and it costs a lot!!!)
The " BANDEIRANTES ",explorers from Sao Paulo who left their city and crossed to the heart of the country searching for emeralds and gold,found this place and believed there was a magic river with thousands of big and rare emeralds there.
The caverns and grottos are amazing!
You can walk yourself or have a professional guide who will show you the most hot points.
- Pros:A PLACE THAT JUST START TO BE CROWDED BY TOURISTS
THIRD DAY:a gain a walk thru the national park and from there to the 'BANDEIRINHAS' CANYON(no cars aloud!)-12km each... more travel advice
FIRST DAY was only to get there and acomodations,in the 'POUSADA DA GRANDE PEDREIRA'(the big quarry inn'..) SECOND... more travel advice
