The Chapada Diamantina National Park is a 1,520 km² national park in the center of the State of Bahia, which is also refered to as the "Brazilian Grand Canyon". The park is located between 41º35’-41º15’W and 12º25’-13º20’S, about 450 kilometers inland from Salvador.
The region is semi-arid, however it has no shortage of water, from the many rivers and streams. On average, the altitude of the park is between 800 and 1000 meters above sea level, although parts are as high as 2000 meters above. In this place is located the highest point of state in Pico do Barbado with 2,036 meters. The park is typified by hills, mountains, valleys and monoliths, with few plains. Let us be completely clear about one thing : the nature in this National Park is absolutely overwhelming...
There are many, many places to be visited.
One of the attractions you could go to is the 380m high Cachoeira da Fumaça waterfall, watch the impressive scenery in the next video :
Over the past years we have made many pictures of this National Park, if you want you can have a look here for a selection of the best views you could find in Chapada Diamantina.HOME
Not only with my " Salvador, 500 years in 1 day " cultural tour but also with a visit of Cachoeira for example. What often is required is a direct link to Morro de São Paulo via the ferryboat of Valença, a trip I do regularly so you can easily gain 6 hours of extra traveling as I take a shotcut inlands (instead of traveling back to Salvador first). Layout your wishes and I will make you a perfect travel plan.
Also in Chapada Diamantina we will bring you in close contact with local people, It is interesting to learn about local habits, we will make sure you meet the locals in person and discover how friendly the people in the National Park are, like our local Trekking Specialist Trajano who is preparing diner on a woodfire on the picture above.
