The Sinkholes of Cerro Sarisarinama.

Cerro Sarisarinama is a table-topped mountain called a tepui, in Jaua-Sarisariñama National Park at the far south-west of Bolívar State, in Venezuela, near the border with Brazil.
The name of the mountain originates from a legend of the indigenous Ye’kuana Indians that speaks of an evil spirit living in caves up in the mountain.
Sometimes the evil spirit is heard devouring human flesh and then a terrible sound “Sari… sari…” is heard.

The tepui is located in one of the most remote areas in the country, with the closest road being hundreds of miles away.
Unlike other tepuis, Cerro Sarisariñama is heavily wooded with 15–25 metre-high forest fully covering the top of it.
This isolated ecosystem is home to numerous endemic species of plants and animals.
