Series on my trip to the CHAPADA DIAMANTINA (DIAMOND MOUNTAIN RANGE) - State of BAHIA - The NORTHEASTERN REGION of BRAZIL - From August 1st to 9th, 2009 - # 046!



SUBINDO - VALE DO CAPÃO - TRILHA PARA A CACHOEIRA DA FUMAÇA !

GOING UP - CAPÃO VALLEY - TRAIL TO REACH THE SMOKE WATERFALLS !


The VALE DO CAPÃO/CAPÃO VALLEY is another tiny part of the PARQUE NACIONAL DA CHAPADA DIAMANTINA/DIAMOND MOUNTAIN RANGE NATIONAL PARK, which does not include the whole area of this Mountain Range that's larger than BELGIUM!

In this VALLEY, a VILLAGE - A VILA DO CAPÃO/THE CAPÃO VILLAGE, with not too many inhabitants, with lots of facilities for tourists (small hotels and hostels) and houses for people who sometimes go there to forget about the World outside that paradise land!

One of the attractions there is the CACHOEIRA DA FUMAÇA/SMOKE WATERFALLS! In order to reach them, one must climb a pretty steep mount and them walk a bit more on a plateau! Here a picture of the uphill trail taken while I was going up and stopping once in a while to recover my normal breathing! It was my first hard trekking in the CHAPADA DIAMANTINA!!!

Those trails were the only ones uphill that weren't too covered by a dense forest, dark and humid, most of the times very hard to be photographed with quality!



ONE WS VERSION:
That's me undergoing exhaustion while going up the trail to reach the SMOKE WATERFALLS!

ANOTHER WS VERSION:
That's me, overcoming the hardness of that uphill trail and seeing in the background, "downtown" VILA DO CAPÃO/CAPÃO VILLAGE !
Click here to SEE it !!!
