At just 2810 meters (9220 ft.) in height, Mont Roraima isn’t even close to being the tallest mountain in South America. Still, it is quite an adventure to get to its table-top summit, which rises above the lush forest below. At the top, there is an ecosystem unlike what is found nearby, including some species of animals that aren’t seen anywhere else on Earth. In this video, we make the trek along with some other adventure travelers to explore a place that was the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. This part of the world remains beautiful and largely untouched, and is on my bucket list of places I’d like to visit myself at some point. For now, I’l have to settle for this video like everyone else.
