About

The National Park of the Chapada Diamantina is situated in the State of Bahia and it is one of the most fascinating natural parks of Brazil. The mountain scenery has an extraordinary variety of ecosystems, like cerrado, Atlantic rainforest and stone fields, Caatinga. The bromeliads and orchids find a privileged ambience, adapting themselves to the differences in climate and altitude. The mountain range reaches a height of 1802 meters and they offer shelter to the Jaguatiricas (local feline) pumas, mocós (local rodents) and deer as well as other animals.

The park is also a very pleasant and interesting place for trekkers and people who like day walks with spectacular views, waterfalls, caves and nature in general. At night you can enjoy a nice local guesthouse and the charming city of Lençois or choose to stay in Vale do Capão in a local guesthouse far away from city and normal life.
