Roraima - Kukenan Route
A stunning trail along the Gran Saban with the incredible vista of Roraima will increase our resistance before reaching the top. Let’s explore the top for two days. At the summit, we will experience natural lagoons, caves, a waterfall, and the triple point of frontier between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana.
Our trip to Roraima begins in Boa Vista. Here we take a van to Santa Elena de Uairen. We rest the first night to gather energy for the adventure that awaits us. Then we drive for about 2 hours to Paraitepui, the nearest indigenous community of Roraima. This is where we start walking. We walk the trails of the Sabana for two days before arriving at the base of the mountain. The journey to the base leads us to unforgettable views of Sabana, endemic flora and fauna and various rivers. We came to the top through an arduous trail and spent two days there. The local experienced guide will lead us through unimaginable rocky formations, caves, a waterfall that forms in a deep hole, and the triple border point. In the next two days, we return to PARAITEPUI, where we take transportation to Santa Elena. After a night of rest, we go back to Boa Vista.
