Mount Roraima

Oldest Geological Formations

South America’s highest Pakaraima table mountain, is one of the world’s most extraordinary natural geological formations, home to endemic animal species.

Mount Roraima, also known as Monte Roraima, is an enormous surreal flat top mountain said to be one of the most mysterious, with an abundance of unusual plants and animals. This is the highest mountain in the Pakaraima chain of tepui plateau in South America, and lies on the Guiana Shield in the southeastern corner of Venezuela’s Canaima National Park.

The stunning mountain is sacred to the region’s indigenous people and is said to have inspired Arthur Conan Doyle’s ‘The Lost World.’ First described by the English explorer, Sir Walter Raleigh in 1596, its 31-square kilometer summit area is defended by 400-metre-tall cliffs on all sides and includes the borders of Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana.

In addition to the breathtaking views, Mount Roraima offers unique flora and fauna as well as endemic animal species that exist nowhere else on earth, including seed-eating and nectar-feeding birds that have adapted to the harsh environment. The most peculiar species here are undoubtedly tiny black pebble toads.

Captivated by these wonders, visitors flock to Mount Roraima to ascend its slopes and reach its miraculous summit. There, at more than 9,000 feet above sea level, hikers can literally stand among the clouds.
