Mountaineering and hiking enthusiasts should not miss Mount Roraima, a tabletop mountain with a diversity of natural spectacles. Situated on the triple border between Brazil, Guyana, and Venezuela, it ranks among the oldest geological formations in the world. With 400 m (1,300 ft) cliffs surrounding on all sides but one, the only hike available for amateur mountaineers runs from the small Venezuelan village of Paraitepui. Embark on the long trek and explore the rich ecosystem of the remote mountain, spot numerous endemic plants, or view its stunning caves and waterfalls. Reach the 2,810 m (9,220 ft) summit, admire the spectacular vistas, and camp out in the isolated wilderness.

  • It is a journey into another world with endemic vegetation and unique, to allow you a break with our usual life complete! Immersion in an exceptional nature, this trek is has do it accompanied by a guide with the logistics of a agency that you instead, gives you to be accompanied by porters, cooks and to leave no waste to sully these spaces virgins, even toilets came down!

  • Reach the top of the tepuy Roraima is an enriching and unforgettable experience. And each day there are more people who want to join this adventure, but to do so they must have the desire and strong enough to leave even the comfort side and even feel the adrenaline as you live the last day of your life. So get ready mentally and physically, and means you're going to get out of your comfort zone.

  • Wonderful, mindblowing..
  • The hike was worth it because to be in an unique place that is part of the oldest venues on earth is just magical.... This particular tepui is the highest of all and scenery is absolutely beautiful!!
  • The most beautiful place in the whole world!
  • First to write review, and first to say that this is magnificent. Haven't been there but thanks to google maps, photos + videos, very amazing place.
  • A fantastic adventure - In planning your trip you may want to allow 2 nights on the summit and of course a day extra for travel to and from Santa Elena either from Caracas or points in Brazil. I elected to pay the extra and hire a personal porter so my backpack was minimal. I was very happy with this decision! You need to suggest that in advance. The tents are a little tight for double occupancy (or should I say cozy!) and I would definitely suggest bringing a matt with you and even your own sleeping bag - although both are provided - check to make sure there is no extra cost before hand. Enjoy this incredible natural wonder!
