Join this extreme adventure and discover what few have seen the Lost World, live from the most enigmatic and energetic tepuy of the planet which will undoubtedly be another extreme experience.
Roraima (Mother of all Waters) is the highest Tepuy of the entire Guayanese massif, it is also the most emblematic of the Tepuyes of the Gran Sabana, being the axis of myths and legends in the Pemón culture and central energy point of the land for the New Age. It is also home to endless species of flora and fauna, which returns us to the era of dinosaurs. A magical world and full of mystery with every step we take. Centimeter by inch Roraima will leave you amazed with its beauty, transporting you out of this world.
