Kamarata Valley, Uruyen & Kavac

Visit the unknown or “not commercial” side of the Gran Sabana by the foothill of the Auyan Tepuy. This experience is a combination of cultural interaction, hiking, swimming and lot more.

Highlights

Enjoy visits to the homes of the Pemón, short hikes to spectacular sacred canyons, swimming in pools at the foot of cascading waterfalls, a motorized dugout canoe to Angel Falls with a trek to Laime’s Lookout Point at the base. Culminating in a visit to Canaima Lagoon with its seven waterfalls- we will end our expedition by experiencing the raw energy of Sapo Falls and traversing the hermit Anatoly’s man made path behind them.

Simply a great combination of two still unknown places of Canaima National Park. This experience actually runs in the Gran Sabana by the southern foothill of the Auyan Tepuy and can only be reached by plane, that makes it more authentic, far from “tourists” and gets you inmersed in the Valley of the Lost World.

One of our flagship Canaima products – features a cultural immersion with the local indigenous peoples of Kamarata Valley (the Pemón of the Kamarakoto tribe) and a spectacular expedition by river from Kamarata to Canaima by way of the world’s tallest waterfall – Angel Falls.

Canaima National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
