From the heart of Surama village, we beckon the audacious to join us on a quest into the mountains, tracing remnants of a long-lost village. Ancient lore tells of a time when the Caribs, in their fierce conquests, targeted the Makushis of North Rupununi. Men stood their ground in valiant combat whilst women, elders, and children sought refuge within the mountain’s hidden crannies. Intriguing petroglyphs guide the entrance to this refuge, notably one eerily depicting an Indian chief being decapitated. Despite many a determined endeavour, the precise location remains shrouded in mystery. Our expedition seeks to finally locate the elusive waterfall spoken of in tales and closely examine the surroundings.

- The Mystique of Surama: Delve deep into the cultural tapestry of Surama village. These preparatory days will amalgamate crucial survival training and impromptu village explorations, setting the tone for the adventure ahead.
- Trekking the Untamed: Gird yourselves for a riveting journey through the wilderness. As we venture deeper each day, the dusk will find us setting up camp amidst the serenading wilderness, the mountains ever beckoning.
- Deciphering Ancient Secrets: Our focus sharpens on the evasive waterfall, its allure heightened by the potential secrets it cloaks. From enigmatic caves to time-worn petroglyphs, the past beckons, eager to recount tales of yore, to those bold enough to listen.
