Angel fall #5

Standard

The magic day started at 3:00 am when the cell phone rang and we woke up. we all were in balcony waiting for the coordinator or someone else to lead us to the car was supposed to take us to the riverside.

We passed through a modern Indian camp and reached the river.

The tour guide told us that in a specific part of river the  river flowing  is too much that the boat wouldn’t be able to bear that’s why we had to walk for almost twenty minutes through a plain and again get in another boat that was the most difficult part.

 

we started walking from here

It was dramatically unexpected that we got wet totally from top to toe. Especially in frequent situations which they asked us to keep sitting in the middle of boat in addition to keep our heads down because the boast was going against  the flow of such a wild water. I couldn’t take pictures as many as possible to capture the beauty surrounded us such as huge rocks in the middle of river. It was incredibly crazy which is impossible to explain that by words.

I am immersed in.

After two hours we stopped four few minuets to take photos from this great view of Angel fall

The next destination was a jungle mountain (if it is an appropriate word to say); The path took us three hours to have another view of Angel Fall; Nevertheless, we had not the chance to go down the Angel Fall because this year was one of the most rainy years and the water level was too high to be able swim in the lower falls down the Angel

The jungle:

It was fantastic

Angel Fall#4

Standard

First day of our package was visiting the Sapo waterfall. Sapo in Spanish means  “Frog”! we had a journey across the pond by Indian boats was located in front of our camp; after about 20 minutes or less we reached to our walking path. Passing through a pain with different insects and weird black dust and soil we arrived to our destination. A vast area covered by a river and falls like stairs going down… the first fall which we were allowed to go under that and enjoy the purity and high pressure of its water was about one meter and half lower the land height we were walking on.

Rules:

1. In some parts we had to walk by plastic slippers and when we arrived near the fall we had to wear the socks. I really haven’t understands how the socks can prevent falling down; but it was the techniques our tour guide thought us.

2. In whole our journey we were recommended to apply replant creams to be safe from insects.

About 10 meters before catching the fall and also all ground around it was covered by extremely slippy rocks.

The photos about this part were captured by one of my friends, so I haven’t them now. I will post the later

Everything above the clouds were distinct and fantastic. It was the first time in whole my life that I have seen such these great views. I remember all my geographic books at school; the teachers always showed us some pictures like these and told us these are rivers and jungles, mountains and vast lands! I wondered how the huge jungles and rivers seem so intense and small. And right now that I am typing these words I wonder if I have seen anything before this trip about the nature!

All awful times we passed were  worth it; I forgot everything even the weird woman who caused the flight missing. I am really sorry for not being able to share all amazing beauties I saw here! I hope you all travel there and see what I am telling now.

The below one are the Canaima airport. I think it is the most cool airport ever in the world. As you see that place which has gable roof is all airport building! That’s all!

Morrocoy National Park # 2

Standard

I posted shortly about our trip to “Morrocoy National park”. I would like to mention the most horrible parts of the trip which was THE HOTEL and as all meals and drinks were included so it got  worse and worse. It was called “Venetur” which is indicated to Venetur Association.

unfortunately, I was so sad because i could not take my dog there and the awful services so i took just few photos not as enough to show the real disaster.

First of all, i noticed there is no towel in room as we entered, and it took a while to bring them in addition, those towels were changed just for two first days.

The food and drinks were as low quality as possible. beside so so so dirty restaurant.

This post contains some photos of our three days trip to Morrocoy which is 4 up to 5 hours away from Caracas. There are many small islands that is called “Cayo” in Spanish. The two of them we had opportunity to see were: “Cayo Sombrero” that I love it more than the second one: ” Boca Seca”. Because the Sombrero was more private, less people there, having a perfect lunch (Pargo dish)
