Spectacular view point from the top of Fumaca Falls. In order to be able to view the waterfall itself you have to crawl out onto the edge of the cliff top, overhanging the canyon. Although is a little scary, it definitely worth the views!

It's a 2 hour trail , not easy but worth it! amazing views!
Everyone goes there so there are many people walking the same way , so you cant get lost even if you want to. So NO need to take a guide - some pousadas and tour companies will tell you you should take a guide because "there are a few trails and it's safer" -my advice - dont listen to them. Our pousada owner tried to convince us to take a guide for 30 brl each. we asked a few locals and everyone said there's no need and they were right!

You can get the local buses of the town of Capão and head to the trail. A steep one hour climb and an hour of flat walking but it is well worth the hike! Just stunning. In rainy season, there is a river you have two wade through so bring flip flops!

This visit to the falls requires a 90 km drive from Lencois and then a 6 km hike to the falls. The first 1 hour is very steep and hot and so go early in the day.

During our 18 days long Brazil tour for the world cup we've had the chance to visit Chapada Diamantina for 3 days, Fumaca was a one-day trip and it was AMAZING, a must see, a long hike, but totally worth it, the view from the top is incredible and the feeling is amazingly scary and beautiful in the same time :)

One of the most dangerous clips I've ever taken
