  4. Roraima Tepui, Venezuela. “Lost World”
    I have climbed it spending 2 nights on the top. Probably one of the most interesting places I’ve been. Fantastic varieties of orchids.

  5. 5.215000°,-60.785000° Eastern Venezuela, near the Guyanan border. The clouds cover the Roraima and Cuquenán (or Kukenán) Tepuys (i.e. giant table mountains) of the Pakaraima Plateau belonging to the Guyana shield. These Tepuys chiefly consist of sandstones making up the Roraima Supergroup of Paleoproterozoic age (~1.87 Ga), and were derived mostly from the Trans-Amazon orogenic belt; here they overlie mostly 2.25-2 Ga Trans-Amazonian metamorphic basement units.

  6. Roraima, a mountain (or tepui) on the borders of Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil.
    5°11’46.76″N 60°46’43.92″W

  7. Mount Roraima, State of Roraima, Brazil. That was a tough one. I have to admit getting some hints from a pal in the UK. Being in Yankeeland I would not have seen the documentary. Oh well.
