The fumaça trail is impressive. Fascinating walk starting with a nice steep hill stretch of 2-3 km and then a long highland walk until reaching a superb canyon and a little disappointing waterfall. The way back is easier but overall a great 5-6 hours of...More

An easy two hour hike with a lovely view as the payoff. Worthwhile if you are in Vale do capão, make certain you arrange a guide!

If trying to decide which hike to do in Chapada, this should definitely be at the top of the list. The various landscapes that you pass through to get to the spectacular waterfall and valley at the end are equally fascinating.

This was by far the highlights of my trip to Chapada Diamantina National Park I hired a skilled guide from 'Trilhas Chapada' who took great care of as we made our 2-hour trek to the Fumaca Waterfall. This was quite hard as you go through...More

Really nice hike! Took about 2-2.5 hours going (starting in Vale do Capao) up at a decent pace. The first hour is a pretty good climb so be prepared! You don't need a guide to do this. Download the trail on Maps.me and you'll be...More

Definitely something to not miss while in Lençois. Great hike with beautiful scenery leading to the falls. Depending on the amount of rain, the falls may go all the way down, be pushed up due to the wind, or have very little water altogether. Great...More

Chapada Diamantina State Park in Bahia is fantastic. Treks, waterfalls, nature, fantastic local cuisine. Fumaca Waterfall is one of the most visited waterfalls in the region

In the beginning of March, the waterfall is almost dry, but I had luck: the rainfall provided enough water and I could see how the wind makes the "smoke" in this waterfall. I dare to say that this phenomenon is very unique! At least, I...More

Jacob, this is a good time , not much rain. But I advise you to contact the guide, it will tell you if it's a good time of year for the waterfall.
