Mount Roraima

Mount Roraima lies on the Guiana Shield in the southeastern corner of Venezuela's 30,000-square-kilometre Canaima National Park.
Its 31 km2 plateau summit area consists on all sides of cliffs rising 400 meters (1,300 ft). High altitude rains collect in small lakes and run off the massive cliffs in spectacular waterfalls.

Do a Google/Images search for some really crazy photos of this amazing geological feature.

Made with World Machine, Vue & Photoshop.

Cheers!
Pete

If I recall correctly, author Arthur Conan Doyle placed his epic "The Lost World", atop one these plateaus.
Happy Easter!

Excellent depiction of a Tepui!Wow! 
I've read already a lot of this giant rock formations with their own ecosystem completely different from the lowlands.
In the past the mesas were completely inaccessible and people thought there are perhaps surviving dinosaurs on the top.

Thank you Simone! :D (Big Grin)
I first became aware of Mount Roraima, and Canaima National Park, from a National Geographic documentary several years ago. Since then I've always wanted to go to Venezuela and explore this wonder of nature.
It's still on my list of things "to do". =P (Razz)
