TRILHA NO PLAT PARA A CACHOEIRA DA FUMAA
TRACK ON THE PLATEAU TO REACH THE FUMAA/SMOKE WATERFALLS

To reach the CACHOEIRA DA FUMAA/SMOKE WATERFALLS one has to go up the hill for 2km and then walk 4km more on the plateau so one can see them!
I took this picture to show a bit how the track on the plateau was! One can notice here some poles, ropes and signs and one would say that's not natural. Unfortunately, the region has two high seasons: July and December/February, when many more people visit the place and in order to prevent them to step on local vegetation (thus spoiling nature around), in certain parts of the trail it was necessary to use them. Guided tours never do that, but many travel by themselves and insist on not respecting nature (and local law)!
