Ibotirama to LencoisMarch 5 in Brazil ⋅ 🌧 27 °C
Day 34 to 35: Chapada Da Diamantina National Park, Lencois ( Sat 07 Mar to Sun 08 Mar )
We will spend 2 full days in Lencois, the gateway to „Chapada da Diamantina National Park“. A former diamond-mining town in Bahia. Lencois's friendly inhabitants, great restaurants, cobbled streets and brightly coloured buildings make it a great town to explore. The Chapada Diamantina could be one of the most striking national parks in South America and Lencois is the perfect base for our adventures. Here we have the opportunity to hike, ride, kayak, relax by awesome waterfalls, take a dip in the rivers and explore intriguing cave systems. We will camp in Lencois for two nights. Head into the beautiful Chapada Diamantina National Park - Included in Kitty. About Chapada Da Diamantina National Park: In the hinterland of Salvador, just outside of the town of Lençóis, lies the Chapada Diamantina, or Diamond Highlands. Valleys of lush
green dotted with bright tropical flowers surround a mountain range of twisted red-rock formations reminiscent of the American Southwest. Numerous small rivers carve their way through the highlands, splashing over waterfalls and natural slides. There are also numerous
caves, some many kilometers long. Many are quite popular, some just being discovered, some restricted yet to geologists who are trying to figure out just how they and the rock formations they contain were formed. The gateway community of Lençóis is an old colonial
town of stone streets and little churches, with little signs of the modern world. The
attractions here are entirely natural. We have the chance to walk the highlands, explore caves, mountain bike old miners' tracks, and swim in natural pools and waterfalls. This is the Brazil that so many travellers miss. It is the other Brazil, away from the crowds of Rio and from the beaches or famous sites. This is the sort of place that you can visit so easily on an
overland trip but that is so often inaccessible to the normal tourist or traveller. Here you will have the opportunity to trek to many of the locations within the park, depending on your fitness and sense of adventure but either way is a wonderful place to spend a few days.
