Trekking in the Valley of Pati
Mother Nature was very generous with Bahia… Aside from its beautiful and diverse coast, Bahia is also home to numerous waterfalls, caverns, grottoes, hills, rivers and trails in the national park of Chapada Diamantina, an expansive area of 152 thousand hectares.
One of the great treks of Chapada is through the Valley of Pati, considered one of the most beautiful in the country. The trail leads from the Valley of Capão to Andaraí, passing beautiful unexplored waterfalls and high plains which provide magnificent views of the landscape, as well as the isolated settlements of the local communities who have little contact with the outside world.
This trip is the fruit of a grassroots project which works in conjunction with the local community, working towards the sustainable development of the region, and which, aside from protecting the environment, generates a new and important income for the inhabitants of Chapada Diamantina, who receive hikers in their homes with utmost respect and kindness, and assure high standards of hygiene.
Furthermore, the company Venturas e Aventuras strives to adhere, together with ABETA (The Brazilian Association of Tourist and Adventure Companies), to the certificate of Sistema de Gestão de Segurança (Health and Safety) which indicates how to run such a tour according to the norms of the ABNT (Brazilian Association of Technical Norms).
