Probably the most famous trek you can do in Venezuela is to climb the most famous and highest table mountain – Roraimu. Another interesting fact is that at its top you will find the tri-border states of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana. Most travelers go to the mountain for five or six days, but the trek can be completed in four days.

Day 1 - Start of the trek on Roraim

If you leave Ciudad Bolivar by night bus, you will be in the morning in the town of San Francisco de Yuraní. Arrange the import to the Paraitepuy trek here. From here you will set out on a tiring savannah path to the river Kukenán.
