Fumaça Waterfall from Bellow

General information

The experience

*This trekking is very dynamic and can be done in various ways due to multiple entrances and exits. Contact us to consult all the options.

Discover with Mamut one of the most traditional and inhospitable trails in Chapada Diamantina. The Fumaça Waterfall (one of the largest in Brazil) seen from below is a true spectacle for those who have the privilege of reaching its base. A 400-meter-high wall where the waterfall’s cascade of water cannot reach the ground uniformly, causing the effect that gives the waterfall its name.

A trail that passes through old mines and abandoned miner’s huts. A true show of history, in addition to all the views we can contemplate during the tour, we will also visit the Palmital Waterfall and Capivara Waterfall.

The trail can become considerably more dangerous due to weather and season, so always follow the instructions of your mountain guide and enjoy the spectacle that nature has to show us.
