The mythical Amazon can only be described in superlatives. It covers an area of more than 5 million square kilometers, of which 80% is in Brazilian territory and extends over eight states, one of which is the state of Mato Grosso. It is the largest and most preserved rainforest region in the world. Through this large area, runs an extensive drainage system of more than a thousand rivers, which represent 20% of the world's fresh water.
The heart of Brazil covers an area equal to that of Western Europe (2,000,000 km2), and its original vegetation is called the "Cerrado", considered the richest savannah in the world, due to its high plant diversity and endemism. Most of the great rivers of Brazil find their sources here. It is an area of enormous ecological importance, with many areas of spectacular beauty, such as the Chapada dos Guimarães National Park, just 55 km northeast of Cuiabá airport.
