Ignite Your Primal Connection: Energizing Cultural and Natural Adventure In The Lost World
Canaima National Park, Venezuela, June 7 – June 15, 2014
Special tour leader, tropical biologist, Anthony Ippolito, Ph.D.
Join us on this expedition into the remote and unique Kamarata Valley within Canaima National Park in Southeastern Venezuela. The region is an unparalleled wonderland from any perspective that one takes. Anthropologists have been enthralled with the indigenous Pemón people, the “society without government”, that are embedded between the ominous, energizing, table topped tepui-mountains that fascinate geologists and poets alike. The tepuis are some of the oldest geological formations on the planet and were first brought to the wider public attention in 1912 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel, The Lost World. Clouds bathe the tops of the tepuis, perpetually bursting like giant rain barrels, erupting from every split and notch in the mountainsides. Thousands of waterfalls carve through the lush verdant forests, including the tallest in the world, Angel Falls. Angel Falls cascades for almost a kilometer, 2 ½ times the height of the Empire State Building, and is a breathtaking testament to the height and magnitude of the tepuis. Explore with us amidst this wonderfully friendly and humble culture, awe-inspiring geological wonders, and deep forests that define the primordial, sublime energy of this magical place.
