Of all the Tepuis (especially steep plateau with vertical walls and very flat tops) that exist in the Venezuelan territory, the most popular one is Roraima, not only for being the tallest of them, but it also has a lot of points of interest and great beauty.

One of these points of interest is the "Grieta de los Guácharos" (Crack of Guácharos) a site of extraordinary beauty and an overwhelming immensity, in which a set of deep crevices are home to a colony of Guácharos (Steatornis caripensis, nocturnal bird , Which sails using echolocation in low light) where you can enjoy the sunset through the huge window, while listening to the sounds of the birds in their night frenzy.

    Jesus, Thanks for sharing your panoramas of this phenomenal geologic formation. Obviously you have a great canvas with which to work there in South America. Keep climbing.

    此全景拍摄于South America

    这是一个概述South America

    South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest.

    To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case.

    The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina.

    Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians.

    Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight?

    I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.
