"Astonishing Waterfall "

The trail is relatively tiring for those who are not used to long walks, mainly due to the beginning of an ingrime climb (usually under strong northeasterly sunshine). But all this initial wear is rewarded with a wonderful view from the top of the waterfall. Indescribable

Cachoeira da Fumaça

The Cachoeira da Fumaça is 340 m tall waterfall in Bahia, Brazil. It was believed to be the country's highest waterfall until the 353 m tall Cachoeira do Araca was recently discovered in the Amazon.

Cachoeira da Fumaça is located in Chapada Diamantina, an attractive region for adventurers, named that way because the tiny water flow is sprayed by the wind before it touches the ground. However, depending on the season, it can be completely dry.

There are two ways to reach it: from above, walking 6 kilometers from the ecological base placed in the Vale do Capão, or from below, after a three-day trek starting from Lençoís, Chapada's best-known city.

Local people knew about the waterfall but wider public learned about it after it was noticed by bush pilot George Glass in 1960.
