Chapada Diamantina is a region of mountains, protected by the Chapada Diamantina National Park, located in the center of the Brazilian state of Bahia, where almost all the rivers of the Paraguaçu, Jacuípe and Rio de Contas basins are born. These streams flow on the ridges and glide through the relief in beautiful streams, plunge into bubbling waterfalls and form transparent natural pools. The national park is administered by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio).
