Tepuy Roraima, Unique Mountain Flat Peak in South America

Until now, the path found by Everard Thurn is the only route used to climb Roraima.

IPHEDIA.com - South America has a unique mountain called Mount Roraima. The mountain called Tepuy Roraima (Spanish) which is also often dubbed by many researchers as "Mysterious Island in the Sky" is very suitable for you who like adventure tourism.

Mount Roraima is between the borders of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana, which is mostly included in Venezuela's territory about 85 percent, and is part of the Canaima National Park. On all sides are limited upright cliffs as high as 400 meters.

This unique mountain, which is bordered by erect cliffs and has a flat surface like a table in the highest area in the Tepara Pakaraima range, South America, at the peak there are many species of animals and plants that are rarely even found elsewhere.

Mount Roraima was first discovered by a British man named Sir Walter Raleigh in 1596. But, at that time he was still able to find a path that could be traversed to reach the summit of Roraima.

Year after year passed and no one has ever stood on this mountain. Until finally in 1884, Everard Thurn, an explorer and botanist from England, became the first person to set foot on the summit of Mount Roraima.

Until now, the path found by Everard Thurn is the only route used to climb Roraima. Although indeed, some tourist services there already provide practical packages for tourists using a helicopter to get to the location.

The highest point of this mountain is called Maverick Rock, which is a rock hill located in the southwestern part of the summit of Mount Roraima. Yes, above the peak there is a peak! Again, paradox. Its total height reaches 2,810 meters or 9,220 feet, and is the highest plateau on Venezuelan soil.

Uniquely, rain on Mount Roraima almost happens every day, soaking the surface of this mountain peak in the form of sandstone, even there is pink sand on several sides. Interested in an adventure tour to Mount Roraima? Prepare yourself! (as/ip)
