Cachoeira das Almas - Rio de Janeiro
Waterfall of Souls

Cachoeira das Almas is approximately three kilometers from the entrance gate of the Tijuca National Park.

It is surrounded by native plants and trees such as the Jussara palm tree, surrounded by the verde da Mata Atlântica. The trailhead is located near the Park Visitor Center.

It is an excellent tour option for those who want to get to know the interior of the park. It does not have a deep well for bathing, but the waterfall provides a good refreshment, giving the feeling of a massage while sitting on the rock.
