Spectacular waterfalls, canyons, caves and table mountains
One of the best hiking regions in Brazil
The name of Chapada Diamantina can be translated as the Diamond Highlands. It’s located in the geographical center of the state Bahia, about 400 km from Salvador.
The stunning beauty of the Chapada Diamantina National park lies in its deep valleys, tall isolated peaks (up to 1700 meters), open high plains and shady canyons. Between its sculptured rocks are innumerable clean, cold mountain streams, spectacular waterfalls, and deep natural swimming pools. Here, you’ll find some of the best hiking trails in the whole of Brazil!
