Vale do Pati Trekking


This valley is one of the most awesome landscapes at Chapada Diamantina. We need at least three days to make a worthwhile incursion there. There are some entries to the valley but in general we choose the village of Guiné or the village of Vale do Capão. First and last days are used to go in and out. So the number of places you will visit inside the valley depends on how many days to stay. The main attractions are the Castle Hill, the Cachoeirão (Big Waterfall) canyon which can be seen from the top and/or from the bottom. This last one needs more time and is a way more difficult than the viewpoint at the top. There are many waterfalls, as Calixto, Tree Pool, Funis and more. There is the option of lodging at local's houses. This add a bit to the budget. Nowadays they are charging R$ 100,00 per person per day. The houses are very simple and the bath is cold. The food, breakfast and dinner, is great. There are battery charging points due to solar panels.

O Vale do Pati é uma das paisagens mais incríveis da Chapada. Precisamos de no minimo três dias para fazermos uma incursão digna do nome. Existem mais entradas para o vale, mas geralmente escolhemos a vila de Guiné ou o Vale do Capão. No primeiro e no último dia entramos e saímos do vale. Assim os lugares que visitaremos dependerá do tempo de estadia. Os principais locais são o Morro do Castelo, o vale do Cachoeirão, que pode ser visto por cima e por baixo. O cachoeirão por baixo necessita de um dia cheio e é bem mais difícil que o mirante no topo. Podemos visitar várias cachoeiras também como Calixto, Poço da Árvore, Funis e outras mais. Existe a opção de ficar na casa de nativos do vale. Isso se soma ao orçamento. Atualmente estão cobrando R$100,00 por pessoa por dia. As casas são simples, o banho é frio. A comida, café da manhã e jantar, é ótima. É possivel carregar baterias, as casas têm painel solar.

  1. Makalu Base Camp Trek

    Sandwiched in between Mount Kanchenjunga and Mount Everest, Makalu towers high with crown of 5th highest mountain in the world. Makalu Base Camp Trek that last around eighteen days is a real adventure with absence of teahouses, small stones hut offering accommodation during trekking season and rest of the quarter of year descend down to Tashi Gaon and further below. Makalu Trek is best to be done on camping basis with big crews, as stone huts cannot offer proper accommodation especially during kitchen stuffs with smokes. Makalu Trekking has lot more to offer in term of remoteness and virginity as very few trekkers hit the trail of Makalu each year.

  2. Manaslu Trek, which is emerging as a perfect teahouse trekking trail on the middle of Nepal Himalayas. With an entire circuit Manaslu Circuit Trekking make a complete round of Mount Manaslu with high elevation of Larke La Pass around 5170 m from sea level. Manaslu Trekking can be accompanied with side trip to Tsum Valley, which is probably the most sacred area of Nepal. Instead of camping trek Manaslu Tea House Trek Nepal is best alternatives to avoid big hustle bustle of camping crew. Normally trekking can last for minimum of thirteen days to eighteen days.

  3. Upper Mustang Trek although expensive in term of permits, which cost around USD 500 for first ten day is worth to spend as history and culture are still well preserved. Mustang Trek Nepal is epic ten days trek in the border toward Tibet with deserted landscapes similar to Tibetan plateau. Mustang Trekking can also be best with exploration up to temple of Muktinath instead of spending much amount on permits that might not be affordable for everyone. Upper Mustang Trekking can be more than trekking with spiritual experience with side trip to Damodar Kunda and temple of holy Muktinath.

  4. Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek, another remote trekking trail on eastern border of Nepal with Sikkim and Tibet is long trek on remote himalayas. Kanchenjunga Trek can either be accompanied by multiple base camp of Kanchenjunga or single specific base camp. Combination of both base camps is often known as Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek that is possible with traversing from Sele Le Pass. Kanchenjunga Nepal is also the starting point of great himalayas trail which last for five months where as specific Kanchenjunga Trek can last up to twenty six days in total.
