    A Train Stroll!!!

    The Train Station

    The train trip lasts 2h30min. The departure is at Emilio Ribas Station (the main - if not the only!!! - train station in Campos do Jordão) and it goes to the Santo Antonio do Pinhal (a neighbor city) Station by the highest railroad in Brazil (1743m).

    During the trip, guides will explain to you the peculiarities of the fauna and flora of the region.

    Check timetables at the train station and make reservations a few days in advance.

    Morro do Elefante

    by ThiagoRamos Updated Mar 15, 2009
    The elephant statue

    "Morro do Elefante" (Mount of the Elephant) is probably the highest point of the city. The view is very beautiful and makes the mount worth a visit. Except this, sincerely, there´s nothing up there (only a small elephant statue, but this will only suit kids who love to take a picture next to the elephant).

    The access can be by car (about 5 or 10 minutes from the city center) or by cablecar, which is much more amusing!!!

    Horto Florestal

    by ThiagoRamos Written Feb 28, 2005
    Can��t feel my feet...

    It is possible to bath on the waterfalls at Horto Florestal. When I went there I saw a few brave people doing it...

    I call them brave because the water was FREEZING (and I went there on a very hot December day!!!)!!!

    I would´ve tried it if I had bathing suits and towels but unfortunatelly I hadn´t so I could only get a brief taste of it...

    Horto Florestal

    Waterfall - Horto Florestal

    There´s probably a specific translation for the word "horto", but unfortunatelly I don´t know it.

    Basically it´s a huge park with tracks in the bushes and beautiful (although small) waterfalls. There are also restaurants and gift shops in the "park".

    It was a 40 minutes walk to get to the waterfall on the picture, which is the shortest track of the park. I didn´t have much time so I couldn´t try the other ones...

    THIS PLACE IS WORTH A VISIT!!!

    Ducha de Prata

    Ducha de Prata ("Silver Waterfall") is a waterfall with bridges all over it and gardens around it.

    Not a "must see activity" I´d say... there ain´t much here...

    The view from the Mount

    This is the great view of the city.

    You can see the lake, the small streets and a little bit of the alpine architecture of Campos do Jordão.
