When we walk above Mount Roraima, some things dont get out of our mind. What a unspeakable place it is, with unbelievable shapes and unforgettable sounds, all inside a deep silence behind a mysterious fog. More we hike and more we see that we have so much to discover. Imagine a wild place, where the time seems like have stopped a long time ago. A mountain which looks alive, alive like in the beginning of time, where slumbering sensations raise our souls, showing how strong and fragile we are at same time.
The reflections come naturally, even for the more incredulous traveler.

1. Personalized service;

DIFFICULTY RATING
The Mount Roraima trail is considered MODERATE in trekking rating. The hike is done in a rough irregular surface with elevations below 3000 meters (9842 ft), not being necessary climate adaptation or climbing techniques. This trail is possible for almost all kind of people, but is needed to have conscience that is a very exhausting hike, which can cause a large physical stress.
