Chapada Diamantina is a protected national park comprising the flat topped Sincora mountains, grassy plains, hidden waterfalls and ethereal caves. Although fairly little known outside of Brazil, it is a paradise for the outdoor adventurer with some fantastic Brazil adventure tours
including hiking, swimming holes, thousands of waterfalls, amazing views and streams so clean you can drink the water. There are a handful of small former mining villages in the area that have changed little since the end of the diamond mining boom. Charming Lençóis is one of these villages and the best place from which to access the park.
