Roraima "Table Top" mountain, in Venezuela. Photoreport.

From the ongoing Round The World trip of stusik_i_sharik

A photo report of the most magical place we've ever been to in South America!

It is the tallest Tipui in the world and sits on the tri-border of Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana. Like its shorter brothers it floats like and island in a sea of jungle and it's tall vertical walls have been preventing anything from getting onto its plateau. People were able to reach Roraima's top only in the past one hundred and twenty years where I bet its views and unique flora don't fail to amaze even the biggest skeptics. No wonder the rumor is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has chosen this place to be the setting of "The Lost World".

We are going to the right one

Here are those vertical walls

A view from the buttom

What's laying on top

And flowers, flowers, flowers...

We slept under stone uverhangs

And if the weather was better we would have gone for a swim

View from up top

More flora

The weather here changes in a blink of an eye. Just try not to get swallowed by a cloud.

Flowers anyone? :)

The trip goes on at stusik_i_sharik :)
