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

It is a 1h15 drive from Lençois (we rented a car from salvador). We did the hike without guide. The beginning of the hike is quite clear. The trail goes up for like 40 min, then you arrive on a platform, there it is a...More

I guess I felt a bit disappointed with it because a) I thought you could bathe in it (silly me) and b) after such a long walk, it's quite tragic to find it nearly dry (only a little bit of water, not the dramatic falls...More

really really beautiful view after a slightly more challenging but nice walk up a mountain and over a plateau. It can be full during holidays and the waterfall can be small at the end of dry season. Ask or take a local guide before you...More

Awesome hike. Not too challenging but enough to get a workout in. The waterfall itself is breath taking. Really interesting how the water doesn't hit the ground and just goes into smoke. There is also a place hidden you can go down to where you...More

This is a nice trek, but it is mor about the vies than about the waterfall. The half hour or so it is continuously up the mountain and then straight through the bush. At the end you have to cross a river. You don't really...More

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!

Hello, What is water level like in early March? My friend and I will be traveling to Chapada Diamantina for 3.5 days March 8. We are deciding between trekking Fumaca or Pati Valley. If we trek Fumaca, we want to ensure it's a good time of year for the waterfall. Thank you! Jacob

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.
