Waterfall of the Capybara3 - Serra do Cipo - MG
Brazil

Located at the Environmental Protection Area "Morro da Pedreira" (Quarry Hill), near Sierra Morena, the Waterfall of the Capybara is the largest in the region of the "Serra do Cipo" (Liana Sierra). Its access is made by MG-010, on a stretch of about 20 km of dirt road, just after the statue of Juquinha, legendary local resident. During the tour you can observe the numerous existing mountains of the "Serra do Espinhaco",  several streams that cross the road and the presence of various flowers that decorate the route followed by travelers.

The natural attraction is housed within a particular property. There are three huge falls: the last and highest of all has a height of 120 meters approximately, forming a pool of steep access. The vegetation is typical of high-altitude grassland, featuring a wide variety of wildflowers, orchids and  giant velozias.

Its waters flow to the waterfalls of the Sierra Morena and the Plant, respectively.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
