Eldorado Falls or Arac Falls ,Palmerias ,Bahia ,Brazil


The Cachoeira da Fumaça ("Smoke Falls", once known as "Glass Falls") is 340 m tall waterfall in Bahia, Brazil. It was believed to be the country's highest waterfall until the 353 m tall Cachoeira do Araca (Cachoeira do El Dorado) was recently discovered in the Amazon.
Cachoeira da Fumaça is located in Chapada Diamantina, an attractive region for adventurers, named that way because Water falls through the air, gradually turning into mist. Closer to the base it hits some cliff ledges but otherwise its free fall in not interrupted. At the base is small pool. However, depending on the season, it can be completely dry.
There are two ways to reach it: from above, walking 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) from the ecological base placed in the Vale do Capão, or from below, after a three-day trek starting from Lençoís, Chapada's best-known city.
Local people knew about the waterfall but wider public learned about it after it was noticed by bush pilot George Glass in 1960.
