Mosquitos Waterfall, Lencois

Categories: Waterfalls, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Very pretty. To bathe in the river. You can also go to the waterfall and get wet in the water. Access is by a dirt road of 22 km and, later, a trail of about 2 km (With some long stone stairs). There's a R$ 15.00 per person rate. There is a gazebo. It is possible to view the falls from above.
