701 VE - Canaima National Park (1994)

Brief Description

"Canaima National Park is spread over 3 million ha in south-eastern Venezuela along the border between Guyana and Brazil. Roughly 65% of the park is covered by table mountain (tepui) formations. The tepuis constitute a unique biogeological entity and are of great geological interest. The sheer cliffs and waterfalls, including the world's highest (1,000 m), form a spectacular landscape."
卡奈依马国家公园

"卡奈依马国家公园占地面积达300万公顷,绵延于圭亚那和巴西边界线之间的委内瑞拉东南部。公园约65%的土地由石板山覆盖,这些生物地质学的实体构成的石板山极具地质学价值。陡峭的悬崖和高达一千米的世界上最高的瀑布,构成了卡奈依马国家公园的独特景观。"
