Canaima

One of the most beautiful places in Venezuela is Canaima lagoon and its surroundings. The lagoon is fed by several small water falls: Hacha, Wadaima, Golondrina and Ucaima. On the back you can see 3 tepuy, those flat top mountains, that distinguish this region, they are called Nonoy-Tepuy (Zamuro or Vulture), Kuravaina-Tepuy (Venado or Deer) and Topochi-Tepuy (Cerbatana or Blowpipe).
Something really surprising is the color of the water and the sand. Due to the abundance of minerals, the water takes a red color and the sand has a beautiful light pink, because of the presence of quartz.
