“Great view of the Chapada”

Mirante da Chapada (Centro Geodesico)
Reviewed 29 July 2015

Our guide took us to the mirante, or overlook, so we could get a larger picture of the Brazilian savannah. It's not jaw-dropping, but we appreciated the chance to look out for miles, watching the fog roll in and out. We also saw green and red macaws flying low across the valley. The people-watching is great, too. There's a small, unmarked, concrete monument marking the geographical center of South America to your right as you look over the valley. But there's also a larger monument in Cuiaba that claims the same. See both of them!

Nice view but nothing special. it is just next to the big road, so short stop if you`re driving by and thats it. The center is marked with one stone. There are better viewpoints in that area.

Sweeping view of the low lands of Cuiaba but really nothing amazing. Go if you are in the area but you will only spend 5 10 minutes there and will get bored.

It's a nice viewpoint with some small paths that lead you closer to the edge of the cliff (little scary with no railings). You can get a nice look at the forest and can even see the city in the distance. There are signs pointing you in the right direction once you head East out of town but there is no actual sign when you get to the viewpoint (slightly off the road). Keep an eye on your kms as it shouldn't be more than 7km from when you leave the town.

Do not underestimate this mountain view point. It is one of the few places still with free access in the area. You must go 7 kms past the town on highway 251 heading east. The entrance is lacking signs (like everything else), so keep your eyes open for a right entrance with a blue abandoned guard post. Drive 200 meters and you will find the parking lot. The site is unmanned so walk towards the right and follow the trail for 5 minutes. The views are pretty nice, you can even see Cuiaba in the horizon and hear some birds underneath. The rock edge has no security so caution must be exercised.
