Trek and camp at the top of Mount Roraima
Conan Doyle’s classic adventure novel was inspired by Venezuela’s ‘Lost World’, a region of dense jungle and rolling grassland dominated by immense sandstone table mountains known as tepuys. On a classic six-day trek we reach the summit of Mount Roraima, a maze of blackened rock and babbling streams harbouring unique plants including rare carnivorous species. We also visit Auyan Tepuy from which the highest waterfall in the world plunges almost 1000m - the spectacular Angel Falls.

Interesting facts
Triglav summiting or how to tame Goldenhorn

Triglav is the Slovenia’s highest mountain, featuring three peaks with the highest one reaching 2864 meters. According to one of the legends, there was a magical Goldenhorn inhabiting the Triglav Mountains. The horns of the mysterious creature were made of gold and would make anyone who caught Goldenhorn forever rich. The Goldenhorn was never caught due to its artfulness in escaping from the chasers, even when injured. The magic power of Goldenhorn was hidden in a divine flower protecting him from deathly wounds. The flower was growing in the crevices of Triglav and boasted unfathomable beauty.
