This is by far one of the most amazing trips of my life. Roraima is a mountain located in Venezuela. Just getting to the mountain was a journey. After a ride by car, plane and bus we made it to the city of Santa Elena de Guairen. Then we took another 2-hour ride on a jeep to the indigenous camp. It took us 5 days to complete the walk from the Indigenous camp to the top of Mount Roraima and Back.
There are no words to describe what you get to see on top of this mountain. While you are on top of it, you are not allowed to scream or disturb the energy of this sacred place. You are supposed to meditate and take in the beautiful scenery. Most of the species are only found in this mountain. This one should go on your bucket list!
