La Gran Sabana
La Gran Sabana (The great plain) is located inside Venezuela's biggest national park: Canaima, in the Bolivar state south. It is an unique place with views that you will not see anywhere else in the world.
This national park has two very different parts: To the East you will find the Gran Sabana (described in this page). To the West you will find the Angel falls and Canaima lagoon. There is a link at the end of this page.
The Gran Sabana has plenty of rivers and waterfalls. Here is just a small sample.
Los tepuyes Ilu-tramen, Karaurin, Guadacapiapuey (dedo de Dios),
Yuruani, Kukenan y Roraima
ON the top of the Roraima
You will find many "Tepuy", those flat top mountains with vertical walls. The highest one, Roraima, has an altitude of 2700 meters. Excursions can be made to the top.
La quebrada de Jaspe
One of the best attractions of the Gran Sabana is the Quebrada de Jaspe, it is a pass with soil out of reddish stone, called Jaspe. Visítala aquí
Kavanayen & Santa Elena de Uairen
The Gran Sabana has a very small population. There are some missions like Kavanayen (top left). Further south is Santa Elena de Uairen, the last Venezuelan village before entering Brazil.
How to get there
You need to take the road that goes from El Dorado to Brazil. The road is paved and in good conditions. However to reach the most interesting places (like some waterfalls) a 4 wheel traction is recommended. Some other places like Kavac must be reached by air. We can organize your excursion to the Gran Sabana.
