I did a 6-day/5-night hike of Mount Roraima and it's one of the best things that I have ever done. My guide, Frank, loved the mountain and hiking with him was perfect. The campsites are extremely basic and you will not be comfortable during your visit to Roraima (you may even be wet for 6 days straight) but this is... More

Also the 2 days walk to Roraima tepuy mountain is under the hot... More

I did a 6 day hike with Backpacker Tours. It cost a bit more than the other operators but it was worth the extra money as the guides, food an accommodation were good. I was worried the hike would be really difficult. It was difficult at times, but not too often. Overall it was fun and really rewarding. It is... More
