Paradise Falls in Venezuela
by darmansjah

 Still remember the adventures of Carl and Russell fly using a hot air balloon to Paradise Falls in South America in the cartoon comedy titled Up? Paradise Falls is actually a utopia of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his book The Lost World. But the place that is similar to the author's great inventions do exist. Located on the border of Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana, stands Mount Roraima, which is part of Canaima National Park. Mount as high as 2810 m above sea level has extreme steepness, the world's highest waterfall Angel Falls on one side. Although the climb with full climbing equipment, the top of this mountain almost untouched humans. Several unique species of flora and fauna living on it such as pitcher plants (sac semar carnivore), Bellflower, Rapatea which is one of the rarest flowers in the world, as well as moss and algae. Interestingly, you do not need to be a reliable mountaineers to reach it because now the helicopter can take you to see the beauty of Mount Roraima from above.
