There’s not an app for that

Hiking into Brazil’s Vale do Pati

For more photos and videos from Vale do Pati, explore the Chapada Diamantina location page and browse the #valedopati hashtag.

Vale do Pati, a remote valley tucked away in Brazil’s Chapada Diamantina National Park, draws visitors from all over the world to view its natural sights. Located about 400 kilometers (248 miles) inland from Salvador, the capital city of Bahia, the park and its valley provide escape from the busy city and an alternative to Bahia’s usual beach getaways. From the many waterfalls and rivers to the abundant tropical vegetation and steep surroundings, Vale do Pati is an explorer’s paradise. As Rio de Janeiro Instagrammer Thássio Ferreira (@thassiof) recalls, “It was spectacular to see a huge wall with water running down it in all sorts of shapes: spirals, small drops and even rainbows.”

As a nature reserve, the valley has an estimated population of fewer than 100 people. Since motorized vehicles are forbidden in the valley, locals growing crops such as mandioca depend on mules for transporting any material resources. Travelers wanting to see the land’s abundant beauty can only reach the valley by foot or by mule, and the trip stretches for roughly 22 km (13.67 miles) under Bahia’s beating sun. Visitors then have the option of camping in the valley or staying with local families in very simple lodging where electricity and hot water are reserved for communal areas. Those staying with local families have been known to enjoy their warm spirit and homegrown food—a perfect ending to days of physical activity.

Must go…
