About Chapada Diamantina


 Chapada Diamantina brings together varied natural and cultural attractions in the heart of Bahia. Right for those seeking peace and tranquility or who is searching for history and adventure script.

The principal attractions are the Ribeirao do Meio rock slide, a half-hour's walk west of Lençóis, with a 100 foot natural cascade; the Sossego waterfall and the Fumaça waterfall, named that for the water tumbling down 1100 ft creating a misty “smoke” as the water evaporates. This was considered Brazil’s highest waterfall until a longer one was discovered in the Amazon.

Many people go to Chapada Diamantina to dive, finding a perfect scenery in Gruta da Pratinha - approximately 390 feet wide and from 4.5 to 7.5 feet deep. Descend by natural stairs into a crystal clear lake. And Os Impossíveis – called the Impossibles for a difficult entrance but once in the crater shaped area at the bottom of a 100 foot pit with vertical walls, rewarded with white stalagmites and access to various tunnels. The main Northwestern passage offers an unforgettable snorkling experience. Poço de Milú and Poço Encantado are great for the activities described.
