Mount Roraima as you can see in the photos is a giant plateau with cliffs up to 400 meters height, a place that inspired fantasies and the scientific eye itself.
Its recognized by the indigenous people of the region like an alternate plane, a starting point for myths and legends, a world filled with extinct animals and organisms never seen before, inhabited by monstruous nightmares.
Mount Roraima functioned as inspiration for “The Los World” novel by Conan Doyle, it was too the filming place for the award winning documentary “The Real Lost Worlds”, where a team of scientists take off to explore Mt. Roraima’s Caves, and of course origin of the “Paradise Falls” idea where Pixar’s Movie “Up” revolves around.
The Roraima Plateau is considered one of the oldest geological formations on the planet, dated to almost 2 billion years ago.
