Our last day was the trekking (2h30) and the waterfall (2 hours there). It was an unforgetable day. The trekking in the forest and canyon was so beautiful and impressive. And then you get to this massive gorgeous waterfall. You cannot miss this place during...More

I was in Chapada Diamantina for one week and this was the tour I enjoyed most. The way up there is definitely exhausting but it's really beautiful and has really great views. You need to hop from stone to stone and at some point even...More

One needs to be in good condition, but if you are this day's hike is absolutely worth going. Walking through the woods, along an interesting mountain river, with many places to swim and have a picknick. Arriving at the falls you are well rewarded with...More

The waterfall is gorgeous. I went one day after a raining day and the volume of water made the view astonishing. The trail is long (14km total) and full of rocks, ups and downs. Guide is extremely recommended. Some adventure without a guide but I've...More

We decided to go sossego even though everyone said that the trail was very hard. The weather was very sunny and consequently dry, so it was easier. Yes, the way is full os rocks that you have to climb and jump from one to another,...More
