Sossego Waterfall, Lencois

4.6
The rocky surroundings at Sossego Waterfall make for perfect sunning spots inbetween each bathing in the waterfall's pool. A two and half hour hike will get you there on your own, or hire a guide to lead you. Another advantage of a guide is the wealth of knowledge he or she will share with you during the hike. If you venture out alone, be careful on the rocky passages that lead to the falls. These can be tricky, but they are well worth the work when you see the splendor that awaits you at the end.

  • We walked almost every day to get there, the place is very beautiful and has many Visual mass walk, but for me the waterfall was not the coolest, access to shower isn't very nice, has to hold on to the rocks, for those who do not know how to swim is not indicated.

  • We made this script with the Agency, which provides a snack well drilled for each person, and with the Guide Manuel. The track is 3 and 3 back and with a moderate level of difficulty. Part of the trail is on the bed of the canyon by stones. Would not recommend for children, the elderly, sedentary people and with knee problems. I couldn't find the trail very hard but the risk of slipping or have a little accident generates a voltage to the tour. I found the ride an adventure for these difficulties and the waterfall is beautiful. Occupies all day!

  • Did the trail with my wife. Was wonderful. We were without a guide because I knew the way, but I don't recommend that there be no guide. There are about 15 km and although the first part is an easy trail, the second part is more difficult because there is the need to pass and skip stones on the riverbed and go through unusual places. Besides, in case of rain the place is dangerous because it is a dead end Valley and subject to waterspouts. Made these remarks is one of the trails that I love and recommend it to all who are not sedentary. At the end of the trail the cachoeira do Sossego is an award, being possible to pass in the slips in the back.

  • It is really nice day trip from Lencois. But you have to start early, it is quite far. In the city they will tell you that you can not go there withou guide but it is not that difficult. Jusk ask locals at the beginning and then follow the riverbed with big stones. I even tried to mark the way with arrows on the way back. Good luck :)
  • Very refreshing waters when hiking in the Chapada. If you know and like parkour, it's also a nice place to practise. They are some spots to jump from 5 to 6 meters high.
  • Beautiful! Worth the trek!
  • The walk is long and the track is hard, worse than difficult. ... Is dangerous. Despite the beautiful waterfall, I don't think it's worth the risk. A fall on the rocks of the Canyon and the person gets hurt a lot, hard to imagine how to take a person injured a track like this. I don't recommend people not accustomed to hiking trails and with own equipment.

  • One of the best rides in sheets. It is possible to leave the city on foot, being perfect for who's in town without a car.
