Smoke Falls

This waterfall is formed by a thin stream. Water falls over an overhanging cliff and forms a single leap. Below the falls is a small pool formed by the falls. In dry periods of the year water may disappear altogether but after heavy rains the stream becomes wide and powerful, air around the falls may be filled with mist.

At first this waterfall was named after pilot – Glass Falls. Later though more popular became another name – Cachoeira da Fumaça (Smoke Falls). This name comes naturally – the thin stream during the long fall is dispersed in the air and turned into mist. Sometimes wind catches up the mist and waterfall goes upwards!
