The Kurupukari Crossing is located along the Lethem – Georgetown Trail, about 5 hours’ drive from Lethem, and about 8 hours when you’re coming from Georgetown. There is where the Essequibo River cuts the trail into two parts. There is a boat service which ferries vehicles across the Essequibo River every hour of the day. This is called the Kurupukari Crossing.

I shot this video on the 21st of November, 2017, as I traveled with Carly Bus Service down the Lethem-Georgetown trail. The video is not the best of quality, but it gives you an idea of what the trail looked like at that time. Who knows what the trail will be like in the future, whether better or worse! It is good to preserve a piece of history!
