We begin our trek across rolling grassland of the savannah. Crossing several streams we ford the Tek River where we will camp having a fantastic view of the stark face of Roraima ahead and Kukunan Tepuy to its left. From here we can also see the pinnacle of rock next to Roraima, like the one by which Conan Doyle’s heroes climbed to the top. Dinner and overnight.


Day 4. Trekking in Roraima (5 hours / 12 KMS) (BLD)
Trek across rising savannah to the base of the mountain to camp in a meadow alive with multi-colored birds and fireflies at night, this place is considered in guidebooks as being one of the best campsites in the world ! The Roraima wall is extremely impressive here rising 3,000 feet directly in front of the camp.


Day 5. Trekking in Roraima (5 hours /3 KMS) (BLD)
In the morning we set off up the route that leads diagonally across the face of the Roraima wall. The narrow trail winds through the mountain rainforests and crosses the small streams where hummingbirds, orchids and brightly colored flowers are abundant. Higher up, the vegetation changes to pre-historic tree ferns and the trail leads under a waterfall descending from the cliff edge hundreds of feet above. After 4 -5 hours we arrive at the entrance to the summit, guarded by massive greyrocks and emerge at the top – looking back for an incredible view. We visit the Valley of Crystals, the river-valley of the Arobopo River shaped like an amphitheatre, around which are grouped large dark rounded stone columns. The river itself runs over a bed of crystals and crystal fragments. We visit the northern point of Mount Roraima for stunning views from various points on the edge.

 

Day 6. Trekking in Roraima (9 hours / 20 Km) (BLD)
Explore Roraima’s summit trekking a long circular route to the triple border point, where Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil meet. We walk through strange rock formations, surprisingly lush valleys and places where the ground is covered with sparkling quartz crystals. There are rock pools everywhere and in them you may be lucky enough to see the strange black toads, unique to Mount Roraima. The plant life is bizarre, as over half the species are unique to Tepuys or to Roraima alone, including several species of orchids and carnivorous plants. We also visit the Oil Bird cave (Guacharo bird).
