About the adventure

Currently, the Mixila Waterfall is one of the most beautiful trekkings of the Chapada Diamantina, with several options of baths in the path beside the burrows, aqueducts and old constructions made by garimpeiros in the golden times of the diamond mining. To get to know her we will need to spend the night in the camp, enjoying a pleasant evening with a view of a starry sky in a magical atmosphere.

Day by day


Day 1 - Poção Waterfall, Mixila Waterfall
The first stretch of the trail is between Lençóis and the Capivara community and can be done by 4x4 vehicles, motorcycle or on foot. This route, known as the Garimpo Trail is approximately 9 km. We will start the trekking up Serra do Bode, a steep ascent of approximately 50 minutes, contemplating the Marimbus region and the São José River. During the hike, we will also be able to see ruins, burrows and old garimpo constructions.


We will continue on a flat walk for an old summit of the garimpo to the Waterfall of the Potion, place where we will camp. After the meal and a beautiful waterfall bath, we will return the walk, leaving the backpacks in the camp, towards the Mixila Waterfall. The following is fascinating. We will walk from stone to stone in a narrow canyon with walls lined with moss and pristine vegetation. It will be necessary to cross two swimming pools until reaching the Mixila Waterfall. The return will be in the same way towards our camping for dinner and overnight.

Day 2 - Capivari Waterfall, Palmital Waterfall

We will visit the waterfall on top of which you can see the meeting of three famous valleys: Capivari Valley, Capivara Valley and Muriçoca Valley. We will descend for 20 minutes a steep slope to contemplate the Capivari Waterfall in front. After a refreshing bath in the waterfall well, we will descend a steep slope for 40 minutes until we reach the river Capivara with the river Muriçoca, where we will have a snack and take a refreshing bath. We will continue the walk for another 2 hours towards the beautiful Palmital Waterfall, where we will set up our camp. The Palmital Waterfall is a magnificent place that has a natural pool surrounded by a wall of mosses creating a completely unique scenery.

We will walk for another hour to the Poison Range.
