Another world, mistique and scary at night. I think is one of the gratest places on Earth! Take a chance to see it, stop on the way and look arround.

With low water in the river up to Angel Falls we were forced to walk across land to negotiate a set of rapids. The landscape was unexpected given that most of the area is rainforest and plateaus. This looked more like an African savanna.

This place is really special and one of the most special places I have seen in the world. The energy is mysterious and local people told me it is calling people from all around the world to come here. As you approach the area you can feel a change of atmosphere. The table mountains look like ancient landing platforms for... More
