Mount Roraima Climbing
Mount Roraima climbing is like no other. The place is a living sanctuary of human history, unique and impressive at the same time, a life-changing experience with many mysterious backdrops. Straddling the triple border between Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana, Mount Roraima is a perfect destination for adventurous travelers. And among so many wonders, we come across the natural jacuzzis. A special and magical place, with several pools of crystalline and clean water, with the bottom lined with crystals, and energy-channeling stones. A dip here is literally a therapeutic bath of positivity and vitality.
Under the gaze of the immense tepuys, the Earth evolved, changed, moved, sculpted beaches, mountains, and deserts, displaced men, and imposed challenges. Anonymous and eternal witness of this trajectory, the Monte Roraima climbing is a magical place where silence emits sounds, stones move, and life travels in a breath of wind.
Allow yourself to be conquered by these mountains and live an unforgettable adventure.
Day by day
Day 1 - Meeting and briefing
It will be the day of the briefing where everyone will get to know each other, learn the latest guidelines, and then enjoy the beautiful view of the BR 174 to the border with Venezuela, where customs procedures will be carried out to prepare us for the trekking to Mount Roraima top, and then overnight in S. Elena de Uairén.
Day 2 - Community of Paraitepuy
We will immerse ourselves in the stunning scenery of the Gran Sabana until we reach the Community of Paraitepuy, and from there, enjoy trekking to the campsites on the banks of the Kukenan River for an overnight stay in a tent, under a starry sky. At dawn, Mount Roraima appears ahead, inviting you for another day of trekking. In the afternoon, everyone will be accommodated at the base, dazzled by the grandeur of the wall. The base camp is breathtaking, the giant seawall doesn't translate into words.
Day 3 - Base Camp and Walls
With the clear sky, we managed to dawn in front of Mount Roraima. And he's calling us for one more day on the trail until we get to meet him. In the afternoon, we will settle down at the base to rest and have lunch, while we face the gigantic walls of the mount. Here we will make a stop while we have a clean and clear view of the area around Mount Roraima. Every time we get closer, we can identify how big it is.
Day 4 - Makunaima Monument
The path from the bottom to Mount Roraima's top is different from all others. One of the most beautiful moments of trekking, with stops along the way for photos, rest, contemplation of the landscape, and several gardens with bromeliads, many orchids, and small birds. You pass through several streams and under the waterfall in the “Paso das Lágrimas”. As you approach the top, you will be observed by the Makunaima Monument, welcoming visitors. Upon arrival at the top, you will be “welcomed” by the “Guardians of the Mountain”, three huge blocks of stones that are shaped like “watchers”.
Day 5 - Valley of Crystals
There will be two days of total immersion at the top of Mount Roraima in Venezuela, highlighting the Valley of Crystals. A place is full of outcrops in various parts of the path. The valley itself brings the sensation of the Macro and the Micro, the extremes, the surreal, the cosmic, and the inexplicable. The energy of this place is not translated into words, but into sighs, sounds, silences, reflections, and silent observations. After a brief passage through Triple Point, the next stop will be El Foso. A place that awakens the child in everyone. There you will understand the reason for this expression. Later that day, we will continue to the Coati camp, which is located in the Brazilian part of the mountain.
Day 6 - Jacuzzi Pools, La Ventana Viewpoint and Maverick Stone
The dazzling is complete with the crystal jacuzzis, with therapeutic baths perfect to energize the body and soul. In addition to the Mirante La Ventana, where it is possible to admire the majesty of Mount Kukenan (Father of the Winds), with its various waterfalls, and to see the immense valley of forests that is between the two tepuys. The images are breathtaking, it is a true window overlooking paradise, an appropriate moment to calm down and let the breeze touch us. And finally, the trip to Pedra Maverick (the highest point of Mount Roraima, with 2875 mt), from where you can see the vastness of the Gran Sabana (including the entire trail that was made to reach the base).
Day 7 and 8 - Going down and goodbye
It will be two days back. After the Mount Roraima climbing, nostalgia and precocious longing will run through your mind and skin, and each look, in each step, will be a sincere “Goodbye”, or “See you next time”, or simply: “gratitude for everything” that has been lived these days. The trekking to Mount Roraima top we organize is like this, no one comes back the same way they went. At the farewell, the strong and affectionate hug involves everyone: visitors, natives, guides, and those who are supported. It is an exciting and very memorable experience!

PlanetaEXO Staff was great
PlanetaEXO Staff was great. Decent food on the trip. Good guide. I think “rain poncho” should be added to the itinerary list of items. Got a few pictures, unfortunately, it rained both days at the top of the mountain so we didn’t get those amazing shots from one tepui to another. Mountain weather changes rapidly and is very hard to predict. This is nobody’s fault. Nobody can control the weather.
These are the records of the seventh day of the expedition. We woke up early and after breakfast, we got ready for the walk to the indigenous community of Taperapuy, after lunch we would return to Brazil. The expedition to Mount Roraima was an indescribable experience. The magic and magnificence of Tepui is very great! The dream of visiting this world heritage site was fulfilled with a lot of rain, and I would have liked to have seen all the beauty of that place with a little more sun! But in every season there is a beauty! When I was there, I said I wouldn’t go back because I still want to see a lot of places and I can’t do it again. But, today I honestly think that extraordinary places can be repeated yes! I want to thank the guides for all the affection and care in leading the group. To the adventurers in the group: Andreia, Izaura, Cristina, Pablo, Paulo, Cuba, Marck and Felipe, it was great meeting you on this great adventure.
Love in the heights
It will take some time to process the expedition to the top of Mount Roraima. The 87km covered in the last 8 days took us to the limit of physical and mental effort. At the same time, it was a unique opportunity to reaffirm our companionship, friendship, respect, joy, complicity, care, and concern for each other, in this love story that we build daily and that completes 12 years in a few days. It was a celebration we shared with a special group of people we won’t forget, as well as the wonderful team at @roraimaadventures. We took our love to the top of the highest flat mountain in the world and together with it, we made Mr. Carl Fredricksen, the character from the animation UP – Altas Aventuras: traveling with his beloved wife Ellie to Paradise of Waterfalls. Climbing Mount Roraima is a mixture of the real world and fantasy. From the fantastic. It is overcoming fears and accepting limits. It is living intensely and being attentive to the present moment. It’s a journey inside us.
A feeling of gratitude
And the dreamed day arrived. The conquest of the Top of Brazil. The arrival at Pico da Neblina. The Encounter with Yaripo. It is impossible to deny the expectation of meeting him, face to face, with open weather… Calmed by the storms, the winds, stripped of the clothes that gave him the beautiful name. Mist Peak. Yaripo or The Mountain of the Wind.
But what he wanted was to reveal himself in all his exuberance and majesty, dressed in the densest fog, surrounded by the strongest and most intense winds. Surrounded by the storm and bathed in the rain.
And so, welcoming us, enveloping us, we were swept away by a feeling of gratitude. Heeding his call, we climbed the last of the 2,995 meters and conquered the highest point in Brazil.
As a reward, perhaps to crown that moment of full ecstasy, the Mountain wept. Tears of waterfalls surrounded the face of the Mountain. A true festival in endless tears.
Connection: Act or effect of connecting, of connecting, uniting, binding. From the Latin CONNECTARE, “tie together”, “tie one another”, people, networks, glances, cell phones, loves connect. “Con” from together, “Nectare” from tying. Get together. From the root of the verb, “nexus”, Sex is connection; Horny, rivers, and wires. Everything connects. Friendship and hearts. Past and choices. Stories. Seed and rain. Seed and harvest. Coincidence and luck. Connecting is a passport. It’s life and therapy. Connecting is magic. Inspiring. Take away the pain. Recharge. Illuminates and heats. It’s prayer, it’s a bridge. Prayer. Hugs. Connection is invisible. It is not touched but felt. Made faith, peace and love. God inside
It’s been a few days since this spectacular trip ended, but every time I see a photo or some memory of the moments I had on the mountain, it’s a feeling that I’m still there. When I heard that people who go to Mount Roraima don’t come back the same way, I didn’t imagine it was so real. Certainly, Pamela after Monte Roraima is not the same as before. The one from now is much more fearless and willing to live all possible adventures. Thank you Makunaima 🧘🏽♀️🙏🏽 and thank you so much to the whole team for this fantastic experience.
Sacred, strong, beautiful, generous land.
Pico da Neblina or Yaripo, in Yanomami, is the highest point in Brazil, at 2,995 meters and is located in the Yanomami Indigenous Territory, that is, in the backyard of their house. 😉 They call it Yaripo, the sacred mountain of the winds. ⛰ Doesn’t seem that high, does it? Yes, but the difficulty is not in reaching the summit. The challenge is getting to your base and then having to go all the way back! 😂
The warriors did a dance with singing in honor of Yaripo ⛰
The shamans gave us blessings of protection in two rituals with paricá. 🌿
In the forest and in Yaripo there are evil spirits everywhere. With prayers, breaths and sounds, they drive away evil spirits from our path, so that nothing bad happens to us. No one can travel without receiving these blessings. They do it out of pure love ❤️.
But no physical discomfort was able to lessen the joy I felt at getting close to Pico da Neblina. ✨ A place in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, in Yanomami Indigenous Land. Sacred, strong, beautiful, generous land. 🌿 An energy that governs and drives each being, each event.
The place is beautiful, but it is very important to be with a tourist agency. The support of the guides is essential.
One of the best mountain trips I've done
Mount Roraima is not for beginners. To go up to it and visit the attractions, you need to be in good physical condition and hire a good guide who will organize the trip, hire porters and staff who will take the tents, and make your food as well. I went with the company of an experienced guide. The place is wonderful, with different fauna and geography. A unique place on the planet.
I can guarantee that all 16 of us had an excellent time and we were sure that we chose to travel with the best company. There was nothing we could think of or want that wasn’t thought of and carried out by you and always with great affection. We started as strangers and ended as a family. The trail surprised me with its beauty, everything is so beautiful that no photo can convey what we experienced in those days. I was prepared for the difficulties on the way, but I thought that at the top the route would be easier, but getting around the top is more difficult than the route to get there, but that increases the beauty and magic of the place. The scenery, the flowers, and especially the charm and magic of the place. Also impressive is the good functioning of the team, which was always in harmony. They were fantastic, there was nothing they could have done to improve our experience that they didn’t do for all of us.
