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.

    Who will own the car access is easy, the walk is light and the trail is flagged. Amazing waterfall, is very worthwhile.

    Beautiful waterfall! But the trail is not too light; almost 2 hours of walking, including by the river; I thought heavy. Quiet only the name. lol. But a beautiful waterfall!

    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.
