    Acopan - Aufbruch zum Goetterberg

    Acopan - Aufbruch zum Goetterberg

    Jochen Schmoll (2008)

    On the plateau of the Gran Sabana in southern Venezuela, the Acopan Tepui towers over the jungle in the sky. It is one of the table mountains that shaped erosion about 70 million years ago. The Acopan Tepui is the dream destination of a German-Venezuelan expedition. The team of extreme mountain climbers, which includes Stefan Glowacz, Kurt Albert, Holger Heuber and Ivan Calderon, tries in 2006 to climb the 700 meters of the northern wall of the Acopan, which rises vertically from the jungle for the first time.
