Mount Roraima is located on the triple border between Brazil, Venezuela and Guyana, being one of the main adventure destinations in South America. It is a tepuy, a type of mountainous formation in table format very characteristic of the plateau of the Guyanas. Bordered by cliffs of about 1.000 m high, its plateau presents a totally different environment when compared to the rain forest and to the savannah that stretches at its feet. The summit is known by many as 'The Lost World'. This region is protected in Venezuelan territory by the Canaima National Park and in Brazil by the Monte Roraima National Park. The summit rises in the Venezuelan state of Bolivar, causing the altitude of Monte Roraima to reach 2.810 m of altitude. The second highest point of the mountain measures 2.772 m and is located north of the plateau, in Guyanese territory, near the triple border. The ascent to the imposing Mount Roraima is a must to every hiker and a 7-day trekking is the minimum required. Its unique formation, its mysteries, its stories and the unique experience necessary to conquer Mount Roraima make this expedition one of the most beautiful trekkings in the world. This Expedition provides 5 of the 11 days at the top of the tepuy, exploring all its extension and attractions up to the Mount's bow. A complete beautiful trekking at the South American Lost World.
