This is a very beautiful, with a waterfall that forms a low altitude and very nice deep lagoon for swimming. Also we can sit under the waterfall but carefully, as they are very slippery rocks. Nearby can buy handicrafts and souvenirs made Pemon Indians. It is also a good place to camp and relax.
is a waterfall located at km 198 of the road between El Dorado to Santa Elena de Uairen, in the east of Canaima National Park in Venezuela.
Composed of a huge slab of jasper covering three neighboring waterfalls, very close to the camping area, represents a beautiful sight and a strategic location for camping in relative proximity to other major attractions in the Gran Sabana.
A narrow and steep dirt road leading to the main fall stones, about 9 meters high falls into a lake of average depth of 8-10 meters. The jump rate is stepped and the average temperature is 10 to 12 degrees. Walking up the river, about 200 meters away is another jump of almost two meters high, next hop is possible to reach a third, about 100 meters upstream described like this.
The location makes strategic leap to be almost halfway between San Isidro and Santa Elena de Uairen. About 40 kilometers separate the rapids of Kamoirán (gas station, inn and restaurant) and about 120 kilometers separate the Santa Elena de Uairen, head of the municipality Gran Sabana.
The last craft in La Gran Sabana, long before the arrival of the Spanish, pottery consisted of singular beauty, textile pieces, baskets, plus the size of bones, shells and stones with which the ancient inhabitants made tools for agriculture, hunting and fishing for their own livelihoods. In indigenous craft production is a form of material expression of their culture, based on knowledge passed orally through the generations. From a complex symbolic system are designated collection standards, preparation of materials, designs and manufacturing techniques to transform raw materials offered by nature in traditional consumer goods, at the same time develop a high quality craft intended for commercialization.
The Indian pottery is associated with clay pots and pans for the conservation and cooking. The pottery of the Pemon pots and jars is very simple but undeniable beauty, used for cooking and preserving liquids.
An expression of the art of weaving is manifested in the development of garments and ornaments, the Yekuanas weave a kind of apron called muwaaju, used by youth in the rite of passage from puberty to adolescence.
The use and production of Indian basketry is varied, some are related to food processing - collection, storage, drying, grinding, mixing, cooking, serving - and other appliances and utensils, for hunting and fishing traps, cages, carcaxes, beds, cribs, walls, ceilings, floors, doors, decorative objects - curtains, awnings, musical instruments, ceremonial objects - crowns, capes, dresses - other than trade.
In the town of El Callao, the main manifestation is the development of unpolished gold jewelry, called Cochano, some inlaid with precious stones in the region.
El terreno está bellamente decorada por artistas locales; las habitaciones son muy agradables, con una gran hamaca en el porche para relajarse y disfrutar de un buen libro. Nos alojamos por dos noches, para ponerse al día con algo de descanso en un viaje en moto por Sudamérica. Cogimos el plan de comidas (desayuno + cena): el menú del desayuno era muy variado, y la cena, aunque sólo una opción por noche, estaba delicioso y bien presentado. (se tomaron el tiempo para preparar platos vegetarianas para mí, y yo tenía buenas opciones en el desayuno, así que es algo raro en Venezuela, donde normalmente si dices que eres vegetariano ofrece pollo).
Lo único malo que se me ocurre es que la Posada está relativamente cerca del club local de baile y era bastante ruidoso el sábado por la noche después de la medianoche, pero afortunadamente no duró mucho.
