Smooth steep walls, a wide plateau at the top, and most importantly - a constant dense fog, hiding the top of the mountain from a casual observer at its foot … Such mountains in Ethiopia are called amba, and in Venezuela - mezas. In everyday life, these mountains are called by the shape of the tops - dining rooms.

The first Europeans to discover and describe the largest table mountain in South America, Roraima, in the 1840s, were the German explorer Robert Schomburg and the English botanist Yves Serne. True, their report turned out to be somewhat … fantastic. It featured rivers with colorful water, as well as animals and birds that lived on Earth in prehistoric times.


Relatively reliable information about the table mountain Roraima was obtained only after almost a hundred years thanks to the pilot from Venezuela Juan Angel. The story of his hitting Roraima strongly resembles an adventure novel. One day in 1935, flying over the Orinoco River basin, he lost his course and, for some time, wandered over the impenetrable jungle, found himself over a small river not marked on any map of this region.

Deciding that the river would sooner or later lead him out of the jungle, the pilot continued his flight along its channel. However, he soon noticed that he was no longer flying over the jungle, but between two mountains. With difficulty gaining altitude, Angel was still able to land on the plateau, which turned out to be the top of Roraima. But even then trouble awaited him: the plane was able to slow down and stop only in a swamp, from which the pilot could no longer roll out the heavy machine on his own.

Angel descended the mountain for more than two weeks, and when he got home, he wrote a story about the amazing flora and fauna of the mysterious peak. However, this time the public accepted the story of the life of the mountain plateau for the pilot's fantasies. Only in the late 1960s was the pilot's son Rolland able to equip a full-scale expedition to Roraima.

In the course of research, Rolland found out that the Indians, who considered Roraima a cursed place, were not far from the truth. We can say that the mountain is cursed by the gods, as lightning strikes it constantly. On a plateau with an area of almost 34 square kilometers, there is not a single meter of land that has never been struck by lightning. But this is just where the wonderful anomalies begin.

On an amazing plateau, travelers have discovered the largest waterfall in the world! Moreover, if usually a waterfall is the end of a river, then everything was the other way around: the falling stream of water itself was the source of the river.

The highest point of the plateau is a mountain with a height of 2,810 meters. Huge cracks radiate from it, and it is simply impossible to overcome them without special walkways.

Amazingly, the prehistoric animals that lived in the "Lost World" by Arthur Conan Doyle also turned out to be a reality. At first, the travelers met nothing unusual. Opossums, lizards, frogs for some reason black, spiders and snakes appeared to their eyes. Species of butterflies unknown to science looked unusual. Only after a few days of staying on the plateau, the researchers encountered the first amazing animal that could well have lived in the pages of the "Lost World".

It turned out to be a fifteen-meter snake with a strangely shaped head and unusual bulges on its back. Following the snake, the travelers saw giant ants more than five centimeters long, as well as frogs, like birds, incubating eggs. Fortunately for the researchers, they never met dinosaurs.

But they found numerous remains of prehistoric animals that seemed to have died quite recently. To crown all the wonders, the expedition not far from the waterfall accidentally stumbled upon a perfectly round area, completely devoid of vegetation, sprinkled with a strange silver-colored metal powder. The chemical analysis carried out then showed that such a powder could not be obtained under terrestrial conditions. It would seem that there are not many sensations for just one mountain?

It turned out not! In the legends of local residents, Roraima was always associated in one way or another with heavenly guests. In the mythology of the aborigines - the Pemon Indians, Kapons and other inhabitants of Gran Sabana - Roraima has always played an important role, being present in a number of cosmogonic myths. This mountain, according to the ideas of the aborigines, is a stump left over from a mighty tree on which all the fruits and tubers of the world grew. It was cut down by Makunayma, the hero of legends. The trunk fell to the ground and caused a monstrous deluge.

It is possible that such a legend can describe some guests from the sky, whose actions caused a major natural disaster.

In the 2000s, the largest system of quartz caves in the world was discovered on the mountain - Cueva Ojos de Cristal, which means "Cave of Crystal Eyes". In length, the cave stretches for almost 11 kilometers, sinking to a depth of 72 meters from the surface. It is also unique in that it has 18 outputs. In the cave, scientists discovered rock paintings depicting unusual animals and humanoids that only vaguely resemble humans.

Today, despite the dangerous climb and a large number of poisonous snakes on its top, Roraima is constantly visited by tourists and expeditions, almost each of which reveals another previously unknown secret of this amazing place.

Peter Pohl, a popular German researcher, author of the theory of a hollow Earth, believes that Roraima is not a mountain at all, but an artificially created pyramid. In an interview with Igor Strizhenov, he told in detail why

- First of all, the mountain is interesting for its shape. It seems to be carved out of a single, monolithic rock formation. If you pay attention to its vertical walls, which have smooth surfaces, you can see how even vertical lines are formed at the junctions of the sides. The height of the upper vertical wall reaches 400 meters. The angled beveled ledge forms fairly clear top and bottom lines around the perimeter. The height of the ledge reaches 170 meters.

On one of the vertical sides with a height of 230 meters, located below the upper ledge, there are two identical oval symmetrical recesses. Their symmetry speaks in favor of artificial processing of these surfaces. The mountain at the base has a lower angular symmetrical ledge around the entire perimeter, about 350 meters high. Thus, the total height of the pyramid reaches 1150 meters from its base. Judging by the condition of the surfaces and deposits on the upper and lower angular ridges, the age of this formation is very solid. By partially reconstructing one of its sides, it is possible to build a model of the original shape of the mountain's façade. And here there is no doubt: we are dealing with a monumental structure, which once was a huge pyramid of an unusual shape.

- Yes, I am sure that under the layer of numerous deposits it will be possible to find well-preserved artificially worked surfaces, as well as artifacts that can confirm the man-made origin of this grandiose structure.

- I do not exclude that its creators, undoubtedly, belonged to a highly developed civilization. This is evidenced by the myths of the Indians, for whom Mount Roraima is associated with the existence of the gods. In fact, the pyramid could have several possible uses. For example, this is an isolated landing site for aircraft, connected by tunnels with other similar formations and other parts of the continent. It may also have been conceived as a huge special building with interiors.

In the language of the Pemon Indians, roroi means blue-green, and ma means great, big. Thus, the name "Roraima" in translation from the local dialect means "big blue-green mountain". In the mythology of pemons, capons and other representatives of the indigenous population of South America, Roraima played an important cosmogonic role. According to the natives, this is a stump left over from a mighty tree on which all the fruits and vegetables of the world grew. It was cut down by the legendary hero McCunayma, after which the trunk fell to the ground and caused a monstrous flood …

- Her rocks, of course, have been studied by climbers, but not completely. Theoretically, you can climb to the top along a mountain trail, it will take about two days. However, during the ascent, the traveler runs the risk of falling into a cloud of dense fog, so you need to be especially careful.

There is a stone labyrinth at the top of the mountain, into which several rivers flow. People often disappear there. Therefore, local guides do not go there and dissuade tourists from a dangerous walk. Perhaps, it is in this place that there is a descent into the bowels, which hide the mysteries of Roraima.

For a long time, scientists were convinced that caves could not exist here. However, in 2009, the world's largest quartz cave system was discovered in these places. It was named Cueva Ojos de Cristal, which in Spanish means: "the cave of the crystal eyes." The system is located on the Venezuelan side of the mountain, in the Canaima National Park. In length, it stretches for almost 11 kilometers and sinks to a depth of 72 meters from the surface. The system of caves is also unique in that it has 18 exits.

- Undoubtedly! The legends tell about Roraima - the Mother of the Great Waters, a fabulous plateau. This mountain is considered the source of all diamonds mined in the area, but the Indians do not approach it for fear of evil spirits. It is characteristic that the locals call the plateau "the lost world of the gods."

“Only after thorough research will it be possible to answer many questions about the bowels of the mountain. An analogy can be drawn with the giant formations found on Mars. However, I still assume that the pyramid mountain had a technical purpose. Two symmetrical oval formations may turn out to be concave emitter mirrors directed parallel to the Earth.

In addition, I have a certain degree of confidence that the Roraima caves and tunnels are connected to a global system of tunnels stretching under the entire South American continent.
