Blue river, PA
> How to reach:
– The first step is to get to Cuiabá, the path is relatively simple because it is a capital. The second stretch, up to Alta Floresta (MT), is traditionally covered by the company Trip, but there are new companies going through this stretch.
– From High Forest, the transfer is made by car, a journey of about 120km of dirt road and ferry, crossing the Teles Pires river, up the banks of the Blue river. The path is traversed in about 3 hours of travel.
> Remember: the peak of the flood (and rainfall) occurs in the months of January and February. The peak of the flood usually occurs in October.
