No hay lugar más hermoso en el mundo que el Parque Nacional Canaima, situado al Sur del estado Bolívar en Venezuela, capaz de albergar los paisajes más sútiles y encantadores, que sus ojos hayan podido ver alguna vez. Desde que desciendes de la avioneta hasta que das tus primeros pasos en esta tierra ancestral, sientes como la tranquilidad se apodera de ti y te invita a dejar de lado tus penas, tus preocupaciones, tu rutina…

Las comunidades indígenas son las primeras en darte la bienvenida, con sus espectaculares artesanías a base de semillas, madera, tejidos, piedras y bisutería tanto para mujeres, hombres y niños. Hay unas para la buena suerte, otras para atrapar novios, otras para alejar las malas energías y otras más, que enamoran a primera vista. Las pulseritas o brazaletes con imágenes de guacamayas, aquellas realizadas con peonías e incluso collares con la piedra de jaspe, son las más vendidas a los turistas que visitan el sector Occidental del Parque Nacional Canaima. Tan sólo hay un local donde puedes comprarlas en efectivo, ubicado en Aeropuerto de este emblemático monumento natural, decretado por la Unesco en el año 1994 como Patrimonio de la Humanidad.

El olor a lluvia, a selva, a río, a naturaleza, está presente en cada momento. La laguna de Canaima está allí, frente a ti, frente a tus ojos. Aquello que tanto soñaste una vez hoy se hizo realidad. Una realidad que te deja sin palabras. La emoción te embarga, te sorprende, te hace reir, llorar o simplemente agradecer a Dios por tan majestuoso escenario otorgado. ¡Sí! ¡Canaima es perfecta! ¡Es mágica! ¡Es fenomenal! ¡Es bendita! Y lo más trascendental es que es venezolana.

Y allí frente a la laguna están los saltos de agua, que te invitan a adentrarte en ellos desde el primer instante. Es una sensación increíble lo que producen estas caídas de agua. Hacen que quieras quitarte la ropa y sumergirte en ellos de inmediato. Pero ¡Calma! Ellos no se moverán de allí. Una vez te instales en el campamento, estarás listo para emprender la aventura, de la mano de los guías indígenas pemones que te ofrecerán las respectivas instrucciones.

La tranquilidad de esos sublimes paisajes naturales tiene un efecto instantáneo. Te olvidas de todo y de todos. Es un momento íntimo, tuyo y sólo tuyo. No hay nada ni nadie más que tú y ese paraíso, que no te cansarás de contemplar. ¡Entrégate! ¡No tengas miedo! Para eso fuiste hasta allá, para disfrutarlo, para tenerlo contigo, para admirar cada detalle, cada planta, cada flor, cada animalito que encuentras a tu paso, la sonrisa de los niños pemones, los tepuyes que ves al fondo, el sol escondiéndose entre las nubes, la noche, el día, la lluvia… Todo absolutamente todo es diferente y mágico ¡Descúbrelo por ti mismo! ¡No dejes que otro te lo cuente! ¡Vívelo!

DSCN0929

Y cuando crees que Canaima es sólo sabana, selva, ríos, lagunas, quebradas y saltos, te llevas con una sorpresa inmensa cuando emprendes el tour por las diferentes rutas turísticas que hay en ella. Elevadizos, caminos verdes, saltos que puedes explorar desde la cima o desde sus entrañas. El Salto Ángel, el más alto del mundo, es el destino más solicitado y por lo tanto el más visitado, por turistas nacionales e internacionales. Aunque resulta fascinante sobrevolarlo y disfrutar de sus caídas de agua desde las alturas, te recomiendo que emprendas la ruta por la vía marítima. ¡Lo disfrutarás más! Su grandeza, su bondad, su carisma, la energía que transmite es simplemente ma-ra-vi-llo-sa. ¡Así tal cual! Te olvidas de las horas que transcurrieron para llegar a él. Te olvidas de los mosquitos, de los impresionantes eslabones que subiste, del cansancio, de todo, de absolutamente todo.

A

Te vas con un trozo de tu corazón allí, clavado en esas paredes del Auyantepuy, la cuna del también conocido Kerepakupai Vená, nuestro hermoso y fastuoso Salto Ángel. Precisamente allí en el Auyantepuy descubrieron recientemente una impresionante cueva de cuarcita, al parecer la más grande de su tipo, bautizada como <Imawarí Yeuta> que significa “donde habitan los Dioses de la montaña”. Y es que los dioses no sólo habitan en esta cueva, sino también en otros tepuyes como el Kukenán, el Chiricayen, el Roraima, en las lagunas, en la selva, en la sabana, en las comunidades indígenas, que aún mantienen sus costumbres intactas, esas heredadas por sus ancestros hace millones de años atrás y que hoy les permite tener el título de los “Guardianes del Parque Nacional Canaima”. ¡Creéme! El lugar más hermoso del mundo está en Venezuela. Se llama Canaima y es sinónimo de paraíso, naturaleza, emociones, que resultan perfectamente encantadoras.
