Tour Roraima Venezuela
Roraima- Trekking Tour
„The Lost World“
Trekking Tour of superlatives by the "Lost World". Most spectacular views and 70% of endemic life - unique in the world! The fantastic story of the Roraima begins with the independence of Venezuela in 1810. By the dispute between Guyana and Venezuela of the border line, the Royal Geographical Society of London, sent the German explorer Robert Schomburgk, to fill the white map from the british Colony with mountains and river, and thereby to establish the territorial limits.
In 1838, Schomburgk reached the mountain, that his Indian companions called Ru-Ru Ima: always fertile mother of the waters. For 4 weeks, the researchers scoured the area, but tey didn't (even in the subsequent visits) find a way to climb it. The following reports and books of Schomburgk heated the interest in this mysterious mountain, in such a way that researchers always tried their luck with the climb. In the middle of the 19th Century, when Darwin's theory of world history began to catch on, was first awarded the Roraima from its old age (Millions of years), and researchers began to the mountain as possible archaeological place of dinosaurs, and other animals. By endemic evolution on the surface of Roraima, theexisting species have never been exposed to the tough competition, as living beings in any other place in the world. Thought dinosaurs have never been seen, scientist have discovered many endemic animal species in the top of it, and many plant species that are unique in our planet. A nature that is worth for exploring.
