GUYANA: Touring the awesome Highlands of Guyana – By Francis Quamina Farrier

— By Francis Quamina Farrier
There is still quite a number of Guyanese who glibly say; “Guyana is below sea level”; and they are so wrong, since that is just one-third of a three-part statement of fact.
The correct and full statement to be made is; “The coastland of Guyana is below sea level, at high tide.” And one has to wonder why just one-third of that statement is so often said by so many Guyanese; and even by some who are well educated, and even hold positions of influence and authority.

A portion of the Kanuku Mountain Range which separates the North and South Rupununi Savannahs in Region 9, Guyana, is thousands of feet above sea level.
