My wife and I spend about 10 weeks every year in Salvador hiding away from the Canadian winter and spending our time on the beautiful beach of Praia do Flamengo. This year we decided to travel inland to Chapada Diamantina since we had heard so...More

You probably start here when you go to Chapada diamantina. Lencois is beautiful and worth visiting. There is live music nearly every night, it's full with people from all over the world and most of all very very safe.
There are plenty of trails...More
Gorgeous mountainous region with lots of history and the chance to strike it rich in gold. Ha! Terrific hikes and waterfalls. Guides with Chapada Diamantina Daniel spoke good English, we needed that, and had good stories to tell. Recommend.
I did a 3 day trekking in Chapada Diamantina with guide Daniel. We were in a small group (3 guys + guide) and Daniel made us feel very comfortable. He has a very good knowledge about the nature and his mentality is really laid back...More

I love this town in Chapada Diamantina, Bahia. Charming town with access to Chapada Diamantina National Park. Various guide services are availble for day tours or multi-day treks. All worth while. Many waterfalls and mountains in the regions. It is beautiful.

Hello! you'll love the plateau! For the first time I suggest 5 days. Chapada is very large, there are many cities. Go to the city Lençóis (do not go to the Cacheira da Fumaça not worth it) and visit the main attractions. 3 to 4 days. Then go to Ibicoara, there visit the Buracão Waterfall. amazing. use the Tour agency, not necessary rent a car.

Before I start my response I must stress that I have no affiliation with any tour companies or trek guides here in the Chapada Diamantina - but I would seriously suggest that you hire a guide for your planned trip. As well as organised tours (where you will be travelling with other like-minded adventurers) there is an association where you can hire independent guides for your trip. These guides not only are knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and geology of the area (if you are interested) but are also qualified in First Aid and can call on emergency services should that be needed. As far as I know there is no "requirement" to take a gude with you.
The trail is not signposted, and parts are pretty remote from help or shelter. Personally I would take sufficient bottled water with me, though modern purification systems should be safe (we are high up in the water "chain") - gas canisters are available in at least one outlet that I am aware of on the main square in Lençóis.
Whatever you decide make sure you follow the basic rules of "wild" trekking - leave your proposed itinerary with someone, arranging to contact them at a pre-arranged time so if you do not check in they can contact rescue services - remembering that in unknown terrain your journey could could take longer than you think (allow plenty of time to chill and enjoy the amazing scenery!).
