Pati Valley Trekking 8 Days 7 Nights

Pati Valley is considered one of the most beautiful hiking areas in all of Brazil. Surrounded by tabletop mountains and tall waterfalls, these lands were left largely untouched during the great diamond mining era. They did have excellent soils that were appropriate for growing coffee, but most of the people living in the valley eventually left to look for work in the large urban centers, and Pati was almost completely abandoned by the late 1970s. The region was incorporated into the Chapada Diamantina National Park in 1985 although a few traditional inhabitants remained and now welcome backpackers into their rustic homes. Their “country ways” and stories have become part of the folklore of these treks, especially at night around the fire.

The Pati Valley trek is a complete hiking experience. In addition to the amazing views, canyons, landscapes, waterfalls and natural beauties, visitors also come into direct contact with the local history and culture and learn about the way of life of these mountain people. To enrich the tour even more, you will visit the Fumaça Waterfall - one of the highest waterfalls in all of Brazil
