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

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!

BEAUTIFUL TRACKS..

You can walk yourself or have a professional guide who will show you the most hot points.
