Welcome to Ecopousada Escarpas do Caraça!

The Ecopousada Escarpas do Caraça is a tourist lodging establishment that combines simplicity with comfort, on the most stunning landscape of the eastern edge of the mountains of Quadrilátero Ferrífero (Iron Quadrangle). Settled at the bottom of the Serra do Caraça (Caraça Mountain), in the city of Catas Altas (state of Minas Gerais), it motivates a mandatory landing for those seeking to unravel the natural and cultural charms of the touristic Circuito do Ouro (Gold's Circuit).

The Ecocentro Escarpas do Caraça is a company that, in addition to offer the services of the charming and comfortable eco-lodge, mobilizes a specialized technical group of people related to education, environment, ecotourism and educational tourism interfaces. To do that, it adds a large number of professionals with wide experience gained both in the university and in professional practice in reputable environmental consulting firms.

Activities

Guests can rest, sleep to the sound of blacksmith tree frogs and wake up with the singing of the rufous-bellied thrush. You can also nap by the swimming pool dominated by the magnificence of the eastern escarpment of the Serra do Caraça or contemplating the nature in one of the numerous discrete and flowery corners of the pousada. And why not reading a novel or poetry followed by the permanent symphony promoted by the local bird population.

For the uplifted, we suggest eco-educational hikes in the internal trails or mountain routes, along which our guides interpret the landscape in its geological, geographical, biotical, historical and cultural components. We take waterfall baths, climb quartzite rocks and take unique photographs to perpetuate the process of admiration and respect for the landscape of Caraça.

For parents, we offer recreational and educational programs for children and adolescents, in which they can do physical activities associated with scientific discoveries about the organization and dynamics of nature.
