A century-old water transport system; Guarantee of an exceptional power hiking adventure.
This is a power hiking trail for experienced hikers. It follows a century-old construction which was built with slave labor. With the use of water streams that had found their path by the gravity law already, slaves modified the course of this water flow. They constructed dams and canals with bare hands.
This was executed to deliver water power to economize the milling of sugar cane. Over the years this became less important. Nature has regained much but has left a stunning wild trail behind. Much of the + 5km distance has to be walked through water. Having your camera with you is good for a harvest of extraordinary pictures during this five to six hours super hike.
On the picture is Osvaldo, lover of his habitat. Osvaldo chose to host people on his premises on the bank of the Rio de Contas. Together with his friend Murilo are they guiding this power hike. Murilo lives in the more secluded area named Cuiudo where the power hiking trail starts at the bottom of a magnificent cascading waterfall on his terrain.
Both have the knowledge and strength to guide other power-hikers in this extraordinary jungle hike down to the Rio de Contas. Nature farmers with the ability to walk with you through unforgettable adventures.
