The Paruima and Panasima Falls are scenic waterfalls in that territory. Located in the Cuyuni-Mazaruni region between Guyana and Venezuela, the area also hosts stunning views of the Kamarang River leading to Venezuela.
There are also huge rock formations between which children enjoy playing hide and seek.
Paruima Village also contains a place of worship, sports ground and a college named the Davis Indian Industrial College. (Photos from Annette Arjoon-Martins’ Facebook page, Is WE Own) (Guyana Times Sunday Magazine)
