The scenario setting for “La Voragine” by José Eustasio Rivera and “Personal Narrative of a Journey to the Equinoctial Regions of the New Continent” by Alexandeer von Humboldt in the 19th Century.
The Mavecure, Pajarito and Mono Hills, stand out as huge natural pyramids in the middle of the lush jungle on the bank of the majestic Inirida River, which is inhabited by playful fresh water dolphins. Further north, our boats will get to the “Waterway Star of the South”; the vast confluence of the Orinoco, Atabapo and Guaviare rivers on the border with Venezuela.
In addition, we will go from the Orinoco to Mono Hill which is set on the great plain of Vichada, to finally find the spectacular rapid of Maipures – often called the eighth natural wonder of the world.
