Between the rainforest of the Amazon Basin and the watershed of the Orinoco River in
central Venezuela is a rugged wall of remote mountains and deep, heavily forested canyons. Many of the mountains have precipitous rock walls that rise to over 1800 meters (6000 feet) where they end in an almost perfectly flat top. These formations are known by their Indian name: Tepuis. Originally the tops of the tepuis were joined together in a vast continous plateau that stretched over a large part of northern South America from the Colombian Mountains into Guyana . Over the time erosion carved steep-walled valleys and crevices into the plateau leaving fragments of the plateau completely isolated. The region remains one of the most thinly settled and one of the most beautiful of all natural areas in South America .
At his desk in England in 1912 Arthur Conan Doyle read accounts of these newly discovered mountains and it inspired him to write the famous Victorian travel novel “The Lost World”. Indeed, in a sense this really is a lost world since the great elevation of these isolated tops has made them biological islands. The most famous of these tepuis is the Auyan-tepui, from which plummets the world's highest waterfall - Angel Falls (979 meters; 3211 feet). The fall is more than twice as high as the Empire State Building and three times higher than the Eiffel Tower.
