Mount Roraima is an incredible place, and a very challenging trek, especially if you choose to carry your own pack. I decided to have a personal porter as I wanted to enjoy the trek and not be weighed down by a heavy pack. I went on a trek organised by Backpacker Tours. I arrived on the overnight bus with about...

The 6 day trek to Roraima I recently completed was an amazing experience and definitely up there with the best hikes I've done. It's a challenging hike though anyone with a moderate level of fitness and determination can complete it, especially since you don't need to carry your food or camping equipment, which is all done by the porters. I... More

(I'm posting this same review under Angel Falls, since it covers both Roraima and Angels Falls.) Our family of four used Hike Venezuela (hike-venezuela.com) to make all the arrangements for a 12-day trip that included a six-day Roraima trek, a three-day Angel Falls excursion, and many logistics to get us from place to place. We began arranging the trip by... More

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

I joined a tour in Santa Elena, Venezuela to Mount. Roraima. It was a 7d6n tour. There are probably not such thing like last minute deal. Departure dates are fixed and may be once per month though all tour agency may have different departure date. Things to concern: 1. Physically fit especially for day 3 (from base camp to the...

It is a pity that the Pemon indians force everybody to start so far away from the Roraima mountain so everybody has to sleep 2 days before climbing up Roraima mountain in very uncomfortable tents with much cold in the nights and threatened by mosquitos called Puri-puri. 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

Climb to the top of Mount Roraima is an indescribable experience. The mountain will put you to the test physically and mentally all the way. The journey begins from the small Indian village Paratepui and for 6 wonderful days you'll hiking and looking absolutely incredible landscapes. If you like adventure, nature, landscapes and challenges, Roraima is definitely for you. Recommended:... More
