Itiquira Falls (Brazil)

During my time in Brazil in 2018, I was very lucky to visit the highest accessible waterfall: Itiquira Falls (Salto do Itiquira). The waterfall is 168 metres high and located in Formosa, Goiás. At the time, I was living in Brazil’s capital city, Brasília, which is in a different state (Federal District) so I was 200km away from Itiquira Falls. I suggested to a friend of mine that we should hit up the waterfall and his family drove us and joined us on one of the best days out I’ve ever had.

When you arrive at the entrance, there is a ticket booth and a bar & restaurant. The entry ticket for 1 adult is around $5 which is unbelievable value considering what you get back from it.

From there, it is a stunning walk through nature as the roar of the waterfall gets louder. You can also take a dip in the river or relax on the benches dotted around this beautiful place.

Standing right at the foot of the waterfall was the most exhilarating experience of my life and I would highly recommend making a trip to whichever is the closest waterfall to you.
