We will leave Lençóis towards the Capivara River, from where we will go to Serra do Bode, where the trail begins.
After 2 hours of walking, in which we will see Marimbus (mini wetland of Chapada Diamantina), we will arrive at Cachoeira do Capivari, where it is possible to practice abseiling (optional) and also invigorating baths in the beautiful well.
From there, we will spend the night camping next to Cachoeira do Poção.
On the second day, we will do a challenging but very rewarding trail, lasting 2 hours, passing through rocks, walls, crossing 2 swimming lakes and enjoying the beautiful orchids of the region until you reach the majestic Cachoeira do Mixila.
- What Will You DoDay 1
We will leave Lençóis in the morning towards the Capivara River, passing by the old Estrada do Garimpo. After about 40 minutes, we will arrive at Serra do Bode, where we will start the trail and after 1 hour of steep climb and 1 more hour of light walk, in which we will see traces of gold mining and also Marimbus (mini wetland of Chapada Diamantina), we will reach top of Capivari Waterfall, which is 45 meters high and has an incredible view. We will go down a trail to Capivari's natural pool to enjoy the afternoon with a refreshing bath. It is also possible to make this descent by Rappel (optional in the amount of R $ 150). Right after taking a bath in the beautiful Capivari well, we continue upstream by trail, for about 40 minutes, to Cachoeira do Poção where we can also enjoy another delicious bath and have a good meal. We will spend the night camped on site!
After a hearty breakfast, we climbed the river bed, jumping from stone to stone, passing through narrow canyons with green walls and deep wells to the Mixila Waterfall. The walk of about 2 hours, displays an incredible variety of orchid species and some waterfalls that make it really incredible. This waterfall was kept secret for many years because of this different access that depends on the crossing of two swimming lakes, but don't worry: these are calm water lakes, making it easy to cross them. The trail and the waterfall alone are more than enough rewards for the effort to reach them. After enjoying the trail and the attraction, we will return to the starting point, from where we will head back to Lençóis.
