Chapada Diamantina Trekking Expedition – 05 days – Lençóis (Bahia) – Brazil


Considered one of the most beautiful trekkigns  in Brazil, the Pati Valley or ‘Vale do Pati’ at Chapada Diamantina is an extensive area surrounded by mountains and extensive flat areas, full of waterfalls and natural beauties, where nature remained practically untouched in the state of Bahia, in the northeast of Brazil. The region was used for a long time to plant coffee, by fertile soil, unlike many other regions affected by diamond mining.

The Chapada Diamentina Trekking is a complete experience. In addition to the countless natural beauties such as Cachoeirão, the Cave of the Castles, there is the contact with the history, the habits and the local culture, contributing to the sustainability of the region.

The Expedition begins and finish at Salvador City (Brazil) Airport, and it’s done in 8 days with 6 trekking days.
