Show Synopsis

Adventurer and wildlife expert Steve Backshall leads a group of top climbers and cavers into the heart of Venezuela’s remote Canaima National Park. Steve and the team attempt to explore the region’s iconic tepuis – vast flat-topped, sheer-sided mountains that rise directly out of the jungle. In the first episode they contend with river rapids, dangerous wildlife and a gruelling march through dense jungle, before climbing a previously unscaled tepui. Part two sees them find rare creatures and carnivorous plants, descend into a dangerous odyssey of cave exploration, and abseil down the world’s highest waterfall – Angel Falls.
