EXTRAVAGANT BIRDS • 24m
Forty five percent of Venezuelan territory lies southern the Orinoco, the Guiana Highlands, part of the Pre-Cambrian Shield which is one of the oldest rock formations in the Planet. This is a magnificent land of table mountains, sheer cliffs, and savannah uplands with immense rivers and thousands of waterfalls, among which is the highest in the world: Kerepacupai-Merú in indian language, best know as Angel Falls, the Great Falls. The Canaima National Park is the third largest in the world encompassing 12,000 square miles. The adventure starts in the Canaima lagoon with a dozen waterfalls coming down from the Carrao river highs. From there the expedition to Angel Falls takes place. We experience rushing rivers, peaceful savannas, dangerous rapids, immense massifs, lush vegetation, orchids and rare animals in this trip to the highest falls in the world at the end of the journey.
