People will find the plateau with dinosaurs, mammals and a race of ape-men



Sir Arthur Conan Doyle : writer
The setting for The Lost World is believed to have been inspired by reports of Doyle's good friend Percy Harrison Fawcett's expedition to Huanchaca Plateau in Noel Kempff Mercado National Park, Bolivia. Doyle took part in the lecture of Fawcett in Royal Geographic Society in 13 February 1911 and was impressed by the tale about the remote "province of Caupolican" (present day Huanchaca Plateau) in Bolivia - a dangerous area with impenetrable forests, where Fawcett saw "monstrous tracks of unknown origin".
