Jalapão is a state park in eastern Tocantins, 300 km from Palmas. It occupies 34,000 km2, and is dominated by scrubland vegetation similar to the savannas, where waterfalls, rivers with crystal clear waters, and large plateaus compose the landscape. In this scenario, golden sand dunes up to 30 meters high standout, giving the place its name: desert of Jalapão. It would be a desert, if Jalapão were not also a paradise of waters, flowers, and exotic animals.
