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 the Marimbus (mini wetland of Chapada Diamantina), we will arrive to the top of Capivari Waterfall, which is 45 meters high and has an incredible view. We will go down a trail to the Capivari natural pool to enjoy your refreshing bath.
After enjoying the bath in the beautiful Capivari well, we continue upstream by trail, for about 40 minutes, to Cachoeira do Poção where we can also take the opportunity to take another delicious bath before following the trail, on the river bed, jumping from stone in stone, passing through narrow canyons with green walls and deep wells to Cachoeira do Mixila.
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 waterfall, we will return to the starting point, from where we will walk to Lençóis.
