On weekends there is a handcraft fair and it is recommended to go up before 10 a.m., as many tourists go up by car and usually brake the traffic in strict stretches of the road, in which only one car passes.

The chances of congestion, increases when there are many cars coming back (descending) from the waterfall and at the same time people going (going up), so the recommendation to go earlier, so the chances of someone is returning is lower.

Getting to the waterfall

Once you arrive at Escorrega waterfall, you have a private parking lot in the surroundings to leave your car. 

We recommend not to leave the car on the road for 2 reasons: the first one is that it will taper off another strict road and the second one is that it is forbidden to leave the car on the road and it is not rare to have inspection leaving the fines on the car.

The road ends at Escorrega waterfall and above it is part of Itatiaia National Park, where there are trails with many waterfalls and natural pools. When in doubt, just ask a guard from IBAMA, who almost always has one .
