Photographer's Note

The Cachoeira do Mosquito is located about 70km north of Lencois. The trailhead can be reached by a long, long dirt road. From there you need to walk for about 1h to reach the narrow canyon. The 60m high waterfall is at the end of the canyon, which needs some wading and rock hopping.
The intense red color of the water is typical for the rivers of the Chapada Diamantina. It is not the result of iron but because of a high concentration of tannin, which you can also find in wine. ;-)
