Mount Roraima is the highest peak of the Pakaraima chain in the tepui plateau of South America. The mount, located in Venezuela’s Canaima National Park, is 14km long, 2810m tall at its highest point, and have 400m cliffs on each side of the plateau. At its summit, Roraima is largely sandstone without much vegetation, though a few sparse bushes can be found. The isolated nature of the plateau makes it home to many unique species of flora and fauna. The peak actually shares the border with Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana, but the mountain is almost always approached from the Venezuela side. The climate in the area is extremely wet and rainy all year round, and the temperature drops the higher the altitude gets. Today this unusual looking mountain is accessible by anyone. Hiking here is not hard and you can also get help from the indigenous population, that organize tour guides.
