Serra do Lajeado
Lonely Planet review
East of town, Serra do Lajeado has scores of beautiful ecological attractions, especially waterfalls, swimming holes, trails and even ancient cave paintings. Its sheer cliffs make it a popular destination for rappelling and paragliding, as well. Unfortunately, most of the land is privately owned, and at the time of research the best and most accessible attractions were closed to visitors by the landowners. Call the Centro de Atendimento ao Turista (CATUR) for the latest info.
