The water volume formed, throughout the centuries, a narrow gorge of about 30 meters in diameter. Through a short trail, one can appreciate the natural wonder on a rock. The waterfall lies within Caramandu Mountains, three mountains symmetrically disposed as a pyramid. The place is considered "full of energy" my mystic people. The landscape is formed by the Atlantic Rainforest with a diversity of plant and animal species.
