Planning is key on long trips like this . Search , make contacts , find out the companies involved and guides , so that it does not become an ordeal !
The TRIP / BLUE has flights on Thursdays and Sundays for the airport Sheets in Chapada Diamantina and also the returns on those days , but inquire about his contact with the shuttle from the airport to the city as the basis for his departure .
If you prefer to go other days of the week , there are regular buses leaving the bus from Salvador , but schedule yourself to get about 3 hours before departure of the bus , and the departure of the aircraft , 5 hours after the scheduled arrival of the bus Salvador , as there may be delays in the plane outward , beyond the bus that often have delayed .
Prefer tour companies registered and listed by known for his adventure does not become an ordeal .
Crossings , carry only what is necessary . Still, when you’re on the trail , you’ll find you’re carrying too much stuff , and 200 in 200 grams of superfluous things , its cargo will become heavy .
Always mild anorak or poncho , because even in the dry season it can rain as described in the report of this crossing.
With the trip scheduled for 7 months , in early July ( 06 / 07 ) landed in Palmeiras where the hostel guide hired Dmitri Igatu the plate Trekking Montaninhismo awaited us . After a briefing of what would be the crossing , a wonderful dinner at the hostel itself and a good night’s sleep to begin to walk in the next 6 days.
