It is the second largest park in Brazil and the third in all of latin America, Neblina Peak National Park presents an extraordinary and diverse landscape beauty. A place nestled in the middle of the Amazon jungle, reserved for lovers of the purest adventure. With 2994 meters of altitude, Neblina Peak is the highest in Brazil and is a dream and a challenge for every adventurer.
This trekking to Neblina Peak National Park is the most difficult in Brazil. The total distance from the trail to the top is 36 km. The walking time between one point and another overnight varies from 03 to 07 hours, depending on the pace of the group. There are several stops and/or campsites: Boca do Tucano, Cachoeira do Tucano (where you can bathe in the river), Bebedouro Velho, Macacos, Bebedouro Novo (where the Coiabixi Waterfall is located), Laje and Tucaninho, at 2,300 meters of altitude, and the top at 2,994mt.
Located in the northwest of the state of Amazonas, this triangular-shaped mountain has already attracted the attention of people from all over the world. Neblina Peak is a myth and strongly attracts adventurers and researchers. Even with all the difficulties of a walk of great physical effort, it is a unique experience that will remain in your memory for a long time. During the expedition in Neblina Peak National Park, we will have the opportunity to live with the Yanomami, one of the oldest tribes on the planet, who will accompany us throughout the trail.
You have to be prepared for a lot of improvisations. At Neblina Peak National Park, the UNPREDICTABLE is PREDICTABLE. For this reason, visitors with an open mind, a high spirit, and who are willing to forget the customs of the city a little, are always welcome, ready for an impressive walk in a place that attracts the attention of the entire planet: the Amazon jungle.

Amazing guides, team and adventure!
Everything went smoothly! Amazing guides, team and adventure! Thanks a lot!!
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.
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.
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.
“Have as your main goal in life to conquer all your goals”.
One of the greatest adventures of my life!!! It was 7 intense days and full of surprises. Breathtaking landscapes and topography unlike anything ever seen.
One of the most magical places in Brazil is Mount Roraima. Incredible trip, with a group open to getting to know each other. I gained a sister and friends… If you can, go meet them!!!
Respect… by my side, a legend, in front of me, reverence and gratitude… Mount Roraima!
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.
