Explore the ‘The Lost World’
One of the oldest rock formations on the earth, Mount Roraima is said to be the inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Novel, ‘The Lost World’. It is believed that his novel was inspired by endemic fauna and flora of tepuis, and that they represent the remnants of ancient species from the age of dinosaurs. Some hypotheses also claim that the mountain is not a natural formation but has an artificial origin from an unknown civilization. This region is way off-the-beaten-path, but like most far-flung destinations is highly rewarding. Trails to the base of the prow of Roraima are accessible from Paruima, as are the stunning Oshi Falls, and Kamarang Falls which compete with the grandeur of Kaieteur. Bushmasters is the only operator that currently serves this remote region, and they know it well.
