The RORAIMA TREK Jutting out from the primeval landscape of Venezuela’s great savannah, Mount Roraima and Auyantepui are as awe-inspiring today as when Arthur Conon Doyle wrote this classic novel, The Lost World. Like a land-locked Galapagos Island, Roraima’s and Auyantepui’s fauna and flora have veered off on an evolutionary detour. Bizarre rock formations and eerie landscapes offer superb photographic possibilities. Camping gear and food are carried by Indian porters; participants carry their own personal gear. The trip is led by a guide familiar with the region’s geological history and the endemic species. These are challenging, unforgettable treks that few people have ever experienced.
Roraima also was the inspiration for the Disney/Pixar film “Up” Clip about the movie UP CLIP
