Parque Nacional do Monte Roraima, Boa Vista

(4.9/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Located at the border of Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana, Parque Nacional do Monte Roraima covers 116,000 he (286,642 ac) of breathtaking scenery in the Pacaraima Mountains. Explore vast savannas, cloud-shrouded forests, and some of the oldest mountains in the world. The highest peak is Mount Roraima--a vast plateau, or tepui, surrounded on all sides by 400 m (1,300 ft) vertical cliffs. The indigenous Pemon and Kapon peoples see the mountain as the stump of a mighty tree that once held all the fruits and tuberous vegetables in the world. Felled by Makunaima, their mythical trickster, the tree crashed to the ground, unleashing a terrible flood.

  • Climb Mount Roraima requires a great fitness, good legs and especially good knees. Even at the Summit are a few locals plans. Except for a few trails-exceptions you will go up and down all the time. The landscapes are stunning; fantastic geological formations, exotic flowers, different birds. In 9 days that lasted our expedition we get some rains and even storm. You can experience the 4 seasons in one day on Mount Roraima. Take a survival blanket, "a laminated paper that works as an excellent thermal insulator on sale in shops of mountaineering. In one of the storms was what saved me from hypothermia wrapped around my body under the anorak. We went with the Agency Roraima Adventures. The owner, Magnus is a sweet person. Super attentive. The guides were excellent, the organization also. But on the first day our tent and another of our group flooded with rain. The luck was that the Guide got a tarp to cover the tent and a cloth to dry inside (the minimum being done!) But the Backpack was wet as well as what was inside her. I've participated in several expeditions in Brazil and abroad and can say with property that the food left a lot to be desired. Besides a lot of frying, I ate on the first day a rice-Pope (someone said it was rice al dente) and another day a hard noodles, like "United we stand" that stood on the plate. Light snack of trail (nuts, dried fruit, chocolate and carbohydrate gel) as snacks offered in the midst of the hiking is fruit (pineapple and melon) and sometimes cream craquer with goibada. In other words, you get the 8 A.M. until the 14/3:00 pm in the afternoon just with this snack is given around noon/1 P.M.. Take a good raincoat or poncho for rain. In addition to protecting the moisture it will help maintain body heat when it's windy. My raincoat tore on the second day and my "goretex" ended up getting drenched with rain. Go with the spirit prepared for cold, mist and storms. But when the Sun opens and the weather gets tight mount Roraima is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen in my life. If you want to get off at El Foso piece to carry a rope to make your safety. It's very risky to come down without ropes. Although my experience as Mountaineer and climber had been I didn't feel the urge to get down without the safety of a rope. And the saw in pictures, the site is an incredible cave. Split an extra charger with a friend. This allowed me to take a snack of trail and photographic equipment. Especially on the way down that made the difference. speaking of descent, take a pair of walking sticks. They will help you save your knees on all walks. Good adventure!!

  • I went with Roraima on the day 28/10 Adventures/2016, the place is amazing, unique ecosystem, views of fill your eyes and fantastic locations. Recommend a good agency with good guides, as this can make a difference in the time to remember about his days on the mountain.

  • I went to mount Roraima in December 2016 with the team of Roraima Adventures. Stunning ride! Requires good physical fitness. Waterfalls, rivers, lakes, different animals and peace! Environment unlike anything we have ever seen. I made the trip to the triple frontier, El pit, Valley of the crystals. All beautiful! Roraima Adventures team extremely competent. A day going back in there.
