National Park Hiking Trail
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.

  • We performed a hike of 6 days on Mount Roraima. We arrived at 2800 meters above sea level. We chose to do an organized tour given the difficulty of the trip, that needs a guide (with howlanders.com). It certainly was very tiring physically, but nothing impossible if you exercised. the fatigue of the journey was by far compensated by the natural wonders we have seen: the view of the landscape, animals and bathe in the "jacuzzi" have definitely made the experience more positive.

  • I hired the excursion to Monte Roraima with the Roraima Adventure out of Boa Vista (RR). Were 7 days with a group of about 20 people. I chose not to share the tent (and loved!). We ate very well all the time. The landscape is breathtaking and unforgettable! The team super attentive and careful. Bath? Prepare for cold river water verrrrry, and had 1 day that I couldn't take a shower. Take moist towelette for such eventualities. Hired to take part of the charger also weight (trust me: it's worth it!). Main Tip: take plenty of tape and take good care of your feet!

  • It was one of the best experiences I had 3 days are required to reach the top of Mount, the whole walk is made viewing the mount Roraima and Monte Kukenan, hosting is made in caves that they call the hotel, has several, one of the attractions upstairs has the whirlpool bath (crystal waters in small pits in the rocks), la ventana (opening in the rocks like a window) , the Cathedral (rock formation that resembles a Cathedral) and the highest point which is called maverick (your training looks like the car), the time that agent gets up there depends on each agency, ranges from 2 to 3 days, to go down 2 days latter soundtrack are is not easy to access but the ability to pay for the Chargers leaving lighter hiking backpacks , Valley super worth it, definitely come back transformed.

Where to stay in Boa Vista

With road links to cities in Venezuela and Guyana, Boa Vista's accommodations largely cater to business travelers. As such, simple, moderately priced business hotels represent the majority of accommodations in Boa Vista. However, looking just south of the main semi-circle at the center of the planned city, find a larger choice of holiday-oriented hotels, with good lists of facilities and amenities, including onsite bars, restaurants, swimming pools, and spas.
