Valley of the Moon (Vale da Lua), 11 km from Vila de São Jorge, is one of the most famous and visited tourist points in Chapada dos Veadeiros. The rocks have been sculpted by the current of São Miguel River for 600 million years, creating a different scenario that resembles the lunar landscape.
A simple but charming place, with very rich biodiversity. The paths beneath your feet seem to have been built by landscape gardeners, and it is all done by the wind, water and fire. Millions of years ago it used to be an ocean, but today is the headwaters of many Brazilian rivers, especially in Amazonia.
