Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the surrounding landscape of Lençóis by traveling to the famous Fumaça Waterfall. Along with this natural wonder, you'll get to visit Riachinho Waterfall, and bask in the landscape of the panoramic view of Morrão mountain.
The tour will start in Lençóis from your hotel. The group will set off after breakfast at about 8:30 or 9:00am for Capão Valley where you will begin the 6km (3.75 mile) hike to the top of Fumaça Waterfall. It is considered the highest waterfall in Brazil with a free fall of 360 meters (1170 feet). At certain times of the year, when there is not much water, the water falls but does not reach the ground because the strong winds blow it back up.  Hence the name “Fumaça”, which in Portuguese means smoke.  There are also beautiful rainbows to be seen.  On the way back, you will have a wonderful view of “Morrão” mountain.  After this we will go to Riachinho Waterfall where it is possible to go for a swim and get your energy back after the nice walk. Afterwards, it'll be time to head back to Lençóis for the end of the tour.
