LA GRAN SABANA

LA GRAN SABANA:

La Gran Sabana: a region situated in the southeast of Bolívar state, in Venezuela, south of the Orinoco River; is completely occupied by the mountain mass of the Guayanas, comprised of concentrations of ancient rocks, generally metamorphic, formed out of blocks of granite. 
Área Aprox: 18.000 Km2
Declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO (1994).

In any case, the name of the Gran Sabana started to become popular when adopted in 1930 by Félix Cardona, companion and compatriot of Mundó, and in 1933 by the Venezuelan engineers Luís Felipe and Armando Vegas, until it became an official part of the language in December 17, 1938, when the President of the Repulic: Eleazar López Contreras decreed that a preliminary study of the Gran Sabana should be made.  Nowadays, everyone knows it by this name.

THE LOST WORLD

During the centuries, the region remained distanced from the course of western history and even today it has conserved its original charm of natural wilderness and mystery of the untouchable, which is now being lost.  Here, in this land, where it seems you can still feel the divine breath of creation, is where the English author Arthur Conan Doyle, set the scene for his novel “The Lost World.”

Tourism in the area is growing in a somewhat disorganized manner, visited by thousands of people during the busy season, travelling from all parts of the world.  The Gran Sabana and Canaima National Park have become the destinations most sought after by nature lovers and those seeking the tranquillity and peace of this beautiful region.  Thanks to the paving of the road Troncal 10 at the end of 1980, the trip to the area is easy and comfortable, in such a way that any vehicle can arrive without any problem, as long as the conditions are favourable, as it is a long drive considering the magnitude and extent of the area.
