Tag Archives: Interesting places

Lately I’ve had this feeling that I would want to travel the world, and I sometimes wish I lived many years ago being a member of some expedition team, exploring and searching for unknown regions and such.
For now, I guess I’ll have to explore using the internet. 😉

At the border of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana lies Monte Roraima, the world’s highest tepui (tabletop mountain) with it’s 2,810 metres (9,219 feet). The table mountains in the area are considered to be some of the oldest geological formations on Earth, dating back about 2 million years. It is also thought to be the mountain that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write the famous 1912 novel “The Lost World”.
