Chapada Diamantina is is at the center of Bahia state, in the Northeast of Brazil.

This scenic mountain range includes mountains, valleys, monoliths, caves, rivers and waterfalls.

The breathtaking landscape, its huge canyons with rivers of brownish waters, the high altitude grasslands, known locally as Gerais, innumerous waterfalls and a great extent of trails, once used by miners in their search for diamonds, makes it one of the best destinations in the country for the practice of outdoor activities.

Highest parts of the park raise over 2000 meters above sea level (average being 1000m above sea level) and offer breathtaking views.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Waterfalls
Cachoeira da Fumaça
The highest waterfall (380 m) of Brazil is so high that the water never hits the ground. It vaporizes in the air by the force of the wind. Access usual from guided tours starting in Lençóis that make the whole trip to and from, or using Vale do Capão. Start in the early morning (best if hot season) and you will be back for lunch.
Cachoeira do Sossego
Another spectacular waterfall.
Cachoeira do Buracão
