    The park offers many trails for hiking and wonderful views all around. It also has a very interesting geology that will excite geology students and rock aficionados.

    The round white, yellowish and grey rocks are embedded into pink rock-bed. Due to erosion from the river, the round embedded rocks are smothened out so every rock-bed looks like slabs of floor tiles. The river water is also yellowish-red in colour.

    There are waterfalls everywhere and the layers of rock strata, forming overhanging rocks make good shelters from the night-rain. Many of these flat sloping strata of rocks look like 'beaches' (without sand). So, you can basically find a flat strata in the next section of the river and make it your own private beach for the evening as you cool down from the hike and enjoy the sound of the rushing river and waterfalls. Perfect!

    There are several trails. A 3-day walk takes you from Lencois to see the bottom and top of Cachoeira da Fumaca (Glass Waterfall) and ends at Capao. Camping facilities here is entirely au naturelle.

    Trekking in Chapada Diamantina

    There's several treks in Chapada Diamantina as we all know... as a National Park, we expect the maps are enough to guide us trhough the trails...wrong, here there's few sign in the trails, and sometimes, even in day-treks, the best is to pick a local guide, wherever you're, Lencois, Capao, Andarai, Mucuge, all those places offers good guides for a safe trek.
    The most famous trek here is the Cachoeira da Fumaca (por baixo), wich i highly reccomend...here you'll have a nice trek, with some great views, enjoy cool waterfalls, including the Fumaca, and get closer to Nature's beauty !

    Vale do Capao has several waterfalls
