Buracao Falls, Ibicoara

5.0
#5 of 63 in Nature in State of Bahia
Waterfall Nature / Park
As you emerge, swimming from the narrow canyon, you are faced with a stunning 80 m (262 ft) drop of water from above. Surrounded by huge circular cliffs resembling a big hole, Buracao Falls is an awesome phenomenon and your reward for a long trek through the lush Parque Natural Municipal do Espalhado. Guides will lead you along Rio Espalhado, where you will see some impressive landscape. They will provide you with life jackets when you reach your destination. Once in the cool, black pool, you can swim around and climb the rocks behind the curtain of water. The experience is exhilarating. As you leave, you will pass two viewpoints where you can observe the fall from above and be impressed a second time round. Be sure to pack your own provisions as you won’t find any shops, just beautiful, untouched nature.

  • Best ride of Chapada.. all Valley walk, which is short, and swimming in icy water and find that visual has no price!

  • Very beautiful place to meet! Perfect waterfall of all we know. The route is a little challenging and at certain points you have to go through under trees and climbing some rocks, but nothing out of the ordinary. To get there, vests are distributed to all. Is not allowed to enter without one. Depending on the time of year, the water is very cold, but even so, be sure to go to the falls, worth the effort. Have a passage with a wooden board by then. If you are adventurous, hop!
