In the eastern part of Canaima National Park in southeastern Venezuela, better known as La Gran Sabana, we find the legendary Mount Roraima, a meeting place for adventurers and naturalists for over a century and considered one of the best "TREKS" in the South American continent. Since the publication of the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "The Lost World" in 1912, describing a South American plateau inhabited by prehistoric animals, inspired by the tepui, there have been many who have dared to climb and enjoy a endemic nature that invites exploration.

It is the highest of the Venezuelan "tepuis" with an altitude of 2810 meters and is located in the mountains of Pakaraima on the border between Guyana, Brazil and Venezuela. Its surface is 31 km2 and in it, we find endemic species of flora and fauna such as the frog Oreophrynella quelchii, and the bush Bonnetia roraimŇď. Its name "RORAIMA" consists of the words of the Pemon language "RORO" meaning blue-green and "IMA" meaning large, this would translate "Great Blue Green" Although most indigenous from the Pem√≥n tribe refers to it as "The mother of all waters", probably due to the impresive and numerous waterfalls that run down its walls after heavy rain. A memorable climb to the spectacular landscape of the Gran Sabana, come with us to climb Mount Roraima, and discover for yourself why today is still considered "A Lost World"

Los Medanos and Sandboarding

Declared a national park in 1974 to protect the dunes isthmus connecting the Paraguaná Peninsula with the mainland, Los Medanos de Coro is an important reference of Venezuela attractions and are visited by thousands of people around the world. Its large dunes, scattered in about 6 km2 and with an average height of 50-100 meters offer an excellent "sand-park" to practice sandboarding: A growing extreme sport born in Brazil, which consits in surfing down sand dunes using a board specially made for this purpose.

Origin

The sandboarding was created by surfers on the island of Santa Catarina - Brazil as an alternative to surfing the days when the sea had little waves. Today has a lot of practitioners around the world, especially in the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Mexico and Namibia, to name a few, with a lot of annual events such as regional championships, national and even global, where enthusiasts "sandboarders" of many countries show their skills in both speed and driving and performing jumps and stunts.

In Venezuela and Coro

In Venezuela sandboarding is relatively recent, and in Araguato we consider ourselves pioneers in the introduction of the sport in Los Medanos de Coro. When and how? After being in contact with snowboard and practice it for several seasons in Europe, we asked ourselves if it could be possible to surf down a dune with a snowboard and drive it as such. and ... we tried!. The response was positive and then it was just enough to consult the Internet to discover how widespread and popular the sport was in other countries where there were dunes. We got some snowboards and we started practicing and taking travelers to the dunes to whom we presented the sport. The reactions from the outset were positive and demand grew. The activity was consolidated as one of the "to do things" when visiting Coro and the dunes after Brian Kluepfel, incharge of updating the famous travel guide "Lonely Planet" went with us to do a tour of sandboarding. Satisfied with the experience and the sport itself, decided to write an article in the guide and it was thus first time the activity was outlined in an international publication. Increased demand led to the rest of the posadas and travel agencies based in Coro to get involved and practice the activity and even raided successfully in making sand boards which has resulted in the consolidation of the city and their dunes as a destination for fun practice of this extreme sport.

In the year 2012 we had the visit of two important "Sandboard" people: Digiacomo Días from the very island of Santa Catarina - Brazil, three times world champion of "Big Air" sandboarding, and the first sandboarder to do a "double front flip" and Fabian Orsi  owner at "Sandwave" an Argentine brand, manufacturers of boards of excellent quality. Both really enjoyed our dunes and agreed that its level is optimal for the sport.

In the south of Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela has a unique natural phenomenon in the world: The Catatumbo Lightning. This phenomenon of great importance for conservation, since it contributes to the regeneration of the ozone layer, consists of a series of silent and large lightnings, some reaching 10km in height, which have their origin in the basin of the Catatumbo river. It originates once the cold winds from the mountainous system of Perijá and the western slope of the Venezuelan Andes meet the organic matter-rich steam from the Maracaibo Lake. The phenomenon can be seen up to 260 times a year, and the electric storms may persist up to 10 hours per night. As is known in electrical storms lightnings produce ozone. The Catatumbo has the highest density of electric activity in the world with 181 discharges per km2 per year. Is the proud holder of the Guinnes World Record as the "Place on earth with the highest concetration of lightning.
