Mosquitos Waterfall, Lencois

(4.8/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
One of the most beautiful waterfalls you will see in Parque Nacional da Chapada Diamantina, Mosquitos Waterfall has an impressive 50 m (164 ft) drop, surrounded by huge walls made of layers of ancient rock covered in lush vegetation. At its base, you can swim in the cool, dark pools or take a revitalizing shower under the falling water, and after climbing to the top, you can stand directly over the fall and look down for some amazing visuals. To reach Mosquitos Waterfall, you have to trek through the privately-owned Fazenda Os Impossíveis, and if you get hungry, the owner will prepare you some delicious food. Sharing the name given to the small diamonds that were found in the area, not the bothersome insects, while you probably won't see any of the precious stones, you might catch a glimpse of the king vultures that nest in the area. Put Mosquitos Waterfall at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lencois family vacation planner.

  • 40 km out of Lencois-recorded on wikiloc-way of easy access, well signposted. 20 km of asphalt and 20 km of dirt road. You pay a fee of 15 reais to enter the farm which houses the waterfall and the Potion-don't let go. The waterfall was with little water, but it's still beautiful and worth the walk. We returned to the farm, where we had lunch and went to the potion, another incredible attraction and little disseminated in the region. It's about running water of a river clear. With several small wells is greater. Well Worth GOING THERE!

  • A very pretty waterfall, a refreshing bath. Beautiful views. The trail is quiet, tired but doesn't kill. Is very worthwhile.

  • Unmissable attraction for those who want tranquility and a beautiful view of the Observatory on the site, easy access trail, there was little water due to the drought that prevails in the region but it's worth the ride.
