Cachoeira do Sossego with Ribeirão do Meio
This trip is recommended only for those in good physical shape, and the hike will show you one of the most attractive waterfalls in the region of the Chapada Diamantina; the Cachoeira do Sossego.
The trip leaves from the pousada or hotel along a 14 km route (about two hours). The trail runs up and down along the river, through luscious canyon until arriving at the waterfall, where you will have a pause for rest and a snack.
On the return trip you will stop at the Ribeirão do Meio, the area which is known in the Chapada Diamantina for having a natural tobogganing slope, a stone slide with water. The waters of the Ribeirão do Meio are perfect to have a reinvigorating swim, and recharge your batteries ready for the walk back through the jungle to Lençóis.
