The Roraima Mount, the seventh highest peak in Brazil is 2,739 meters (8,980 ft) high. It is one of the oldest and most exotic places in entire planet. The Roraima Mount Mount is part of the Tepui Mountains, which are a rare type of rock formation shaped like tables, about 2 million years old. Roraima Mount is located on the border of Brazil, Venezuela and French Guiana. The trek to the Roraima Mount Expedition is unbelievably beautiful and certainly unforgettable. Your own legs will take you to explore the mysteries of "The Lost World" as described by Conan Doyle in his book. The 6-day trek on the Venezuelan Grand Sabana is worth every minute. The steep trail to the top, the most difficult part of the whole trek, is one of the most challenging and amazing moments during the trip.

The landscapes and views are full of legends and mysteries. The top of the Roraima Mount is a gift after the ascent. You will explore its 33 square miles plateau (84 square kilometers) for three days. The wonderful and unique rock formations; the Crystal Valley and the triple border are definitely sites that you will keep in your memories forever.
