Kamarata Valley
3 days

Visit the unknown side of the Gran Sabana by the foothill of the Auyan Tepuy. This experience is a combination of cultural interaction, hiking, swimming and lot more. Simply a great combination of two still unknown places of Canaima National Park. This experience actually runs in the Gran Sabana by the southern foothill of the Auyan Tepuy and can only be reached by plane, that makes it more authentic and gets you inmersed in the Valley of the Lost World.

We will find Santa marta, a 80 inhabitants Pemon village that lives on agriculture and fishing before we arrive to Kavac. After lunch we will relax and hike to the Kavac cave with a short stop at the Lovers pool;  we will swim into the cave which is one of the most magical experiences of Canaima National Park, inside we will find Kavac Falls where we can swim and get nice pictures with the light that goes in through the top of this grotto.
