Mosquitos Waterfall, Lencois

4.8
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.

  • This waterfall is beautiful. An incredible experience. Access is full of ups and downs, there has to be a reasonable fitness, because the track has a moderate level of difficulty. But it sure is a gift when you get there. Cold water, invigorating after the walk. It was the tour that more I like!!!

  • The waterfall of the Mosquito is very beautiful. You can spend hours sitting on the rocks looking at the falling water. There are small accumulations of water in which it is possible to freshen up. But there's a pool for swimming. You can sit under the waterfall.

  • Easy access. A waterfall where children can enjoy it without much effort. 50 m waterfall to be bathed. Don't let go.
