The park is home to indigenous Pemon Indians. (Pemon is a Cariban language spoken mainly in Venezuela)The Pemon have an intimate relationship with the tepuis, and believe they are the home of the 'mawari' spirits. The park is relatively remote, with only a few roads connecting towns. Most transport within the park is done by light plane from the airstrips built by various Capuchin missions, or by foot and canoe. Canaima卡耐玛国家公园,位于委内瑞拉南部，属亚马逊平原的一部分，以多瀑布和平顶山著称. 因为地势险要,地处偏僻,所以到达CANAIMA的唯一方法,就是把性命系在裤带上坐螺旋桨小飞机过去.
