If you join me on this 3-day trek to Fumaca Waterfall in Chapada Diamantina, Bahia, I promise you will bear witness to some of the most jaw-dropping and breathtaking scenery in all of Brazil, as we hike through waterways, canyons and valleys to reach the highest waterfall in Bahia, all while taking in the truly epic and amazing views out over this special terrain.

The Fumaca Waterfall is located within the national park of Chapada Diamantina in the state of Bahia, a popular location for hikers and adventurers. There is a wide array of flora and fauna in the park, with protected species such as jaguars, giant armadillos, giant anteaters and white-necked hawks calling it home.

Our trip begins on the first morning in the village of Lencois, from where we head straight to the lush green hills above the town. This day entails much hiking on rocky terrain, with frequent stops to admire the awesome views back out over the valleys, before we set up camp for the night next to a peaceful and lovely river.

The second day is the undisputed highlight of the trip, as after a morning swim to invigorate and refresh us we head to the Fumaca Waterfall, in all 390m of its glory. The waterfall itself is absolutely magnificent, and as the highest waterfall in Bahia the water does not even reach the bottom!

The third and final day involves hiking up to the summit of the Serra do Sincora, before heading along to the summit of Fumaca, the massive and huge expanses of the green valleys below opening up, making for some of the best pictures you can possibly take.

We then descend down and head back to Lencois, thrilled and content with our 3 days exploring this exquisite part of the world.

This 3-day trek to Fumaca Waterfall is a stunning experience, and one to add to the bucket list – book now before its too late!
