Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Georgetown-Lethem Road

The desolate Georgetown-Lethem Road: the only land route into the Guyana interior

The main and only land route into the interior of Guyana is the Georgetown-Lethem Road. Unfortunately, there is no bus service that takes travelers down this route, but with hope this will change soon. I have been told that a company will soon offer air-conditioned buses. In the meantime, mini-bus is the only way to go. It takes about 14-16 hours to travel the road by mini-bus and costs around $50.00.  One of the highlights of the trip is the Iwokrama Rainforest just north of Annai. This picture was taken from the Rupunini Savannah on a way to a tour into the Iwokrama Rainforest.

Stay tuned,
