Romulo Gallegos’ Jungle Route
Romulo Gallegos’ Jungle Route is a completely new itinerary. Doing this route you will get to know Romulo Gallegos, one of the most important Venezuelan writers, and you will follow the journey of the main character of his novel Canaima, an adventurer. Gallegos took a trip to Bolivar State, south of Venezuela, in order to gather material for the book, and his main character in Canaima crosses the Venezuelan Guayana looking for gold, diamonds and rubber.
The route begins in Ciudad Bolivar and runs through the Yuruari territory evoking the history of the people that comprise it. It goes into the rainforest and ends by the hands of the indigenous Pemon, with whom you will meet the western side of the Gran Sabana, an area of difficult access and stunning tepuys and waterfalls.
“The current stories of jungles, bends and towns quoted in the broad narrative of writers like Romulo Gallegos.” Lorena Gonzalez, El Nacional
