Went several times to the park, to climb the peaks, but also to hike around. There are many hikes you can do to the waterfalls. A must do when you are in the area. Some hikes require a guide.

Response from Arthur N |
You can take a bus in rio going to Resende-Rj or Itatiaia-RJ, there you'll need to get a taxi.
