Venezeula can be a bit daunting, crime and robbery is a real problem, we were always aware, but once we got out to Santa Elena, we finally felt we could take a deep breathe and relax. And then the trek/hike to Roraima was phenomenal. I've hiked a lot of places, including a 3 weeks Annapurna circuit, and this, although shorter... More

As simple as that, the most extraordinary trip in my life, 7 days trip, 2 and a half days going up, 2 days down, 2 and a half days in the most impressive landscape I ever seen, the formations in the rock defies the logic, the mother of all water, name given by the local indigenous people, the pemon, is...

The most magical place ever visited Highly recommended but not for everyone. 3-4 day medium to hard trekking to get to the top of Mount Roraima ("mother of all water") The Lost World (Conan Doyle novel) is based partially on his visit. The only place on earth were frogs have not evolved to be scared of predators and jump, they... More

Having seen up I was very keen to go to Rorama and it lived up to expectation. It really is an amazing place, it's like another world up there. It is a long walk to get up there (2-3 days up and 2 days down) but it's totally worth it. The views are amazing and there is lots to do... More

Roraima - what can you say? Beautiful place. It is like none other I have ever gone in my life. It is a once in a lifetime kind of trip. If it were better organized, better taken care of, the magnificent place will probably attract more international tourist (or even local Venezuelan). We went for 7 days 6 nights. The... More

It is indeed an amazing and fascinating place. The hike was done in 6 days. Three days uphill, then one day to explore the mountain and two days to go down. The heat of the sabana can be very hard but there is water along the trails (rivers and creeks, clean water). There are no toilets and camping is necessary.... More

Well worth the trip. 6 days up and back, very basic. No places to purchase anything so bring everything. You can fill up water bottles from the rivers. I went with exodus tour company who use Cacao as the local operator. Our guide Elke was excellent. Wear long sleeves and pants to protect you from the midges near the rivers.....they... More

It's an amazing and unique place, you need to go to Venezuela to start the track, It's tiring, almost 55km to go up and down.
