The Chapada Diamantina offers a number of varying trails and treks through stunning scenery, wild jungle and awe inspiring hills and mountains. One of these treks is in the Parque Nacional da Chapada Diamantina and is the trail – Trilha Lençóis Capão. To see the wonderful scenery of this trail you first need to take a car from Lençóis, and travel about 2 hours to the Vale do Capão. The trek Lençóis Capão is about 25 km, passing through vegetation composed of Cerrado, Mata Atlântica (atlantic rainforest) and Caatinga.
