Roraima - the lost world

(9 oppure 10 giorni)

Giorno 1

Lasciamo Mérida al mattino guidare attraverso El Valle a La Culata, il punto di partenza della nostra escursione che si trova a 2,950 m. slm. Faremo trekking per circa 3-4 ore, al fine di raggiungere il nostro primo campeggio ai piedi di una cascata in mezzo a una valle mistico pieno di Speletia fiori situati a 3,600 metri sul livello del mare. Pernottamento in tenda.

Giorno 2

La nostra giornata inizia con una salita ripida per un paio d'ore a Pan de Azucar picco 4,600 metri sul livello del mare. Tempo permettendo saremo in grado di vedere Pico Bolivar (il più alto del Venezuela a 5,007 metri) e Pico Humboldt. Faremo trekking attraverso un andino asciutto tipo di paesaggio del deserto per raggiungere il nostro secondo campeggio a bordo di 3 laghi di montagna. (6-8 ore di cammino). Pernottamento in tenda.

Giorno 3

Oggi scendiamo 3-4 ore sui piccoli sentieri di montagna dove il gioiello del Parco Nazionale Sierra La Culata ci attende. Le sorgenti calde naturali sono alla 3,200 metri e sono un luogo ideale per rilassarsi dopo un paio di notti fresche in montagna. La temperatura dell'acqua va da 32 – 38 Gradi Celsius. Dopo aver gustato un pic-nic faremo la nostra migrazione definitiva verso il basso per soddisfare il nostro trasporto alla città di Mérida.

Giorno 4. Base Camp - Roraima Summit

Leaving base camp we hike about 3 orario (1,5kms) to the top of The Lost World at 2,700m. An exhilarating hike with spectacular views and an overwhelming number of ferns, bromeliads and other rare plants. The sheer wall of Roraima is a tough climb to the summit at 2,700m. The path continues through rain forest and up to the plateau, where there are interesting rock formations, the result of 2 billion years of erosion!

The prehistoric and unusual plants on the summit are a wonder to behold. Our tents will be set up in natural caves for two nights, providing protection from the frequent mists and showers on top. (Tutti i pasti)

Giorno 5. Roraima Summit - Triple Point

We will explore the fantasy land atop Roraima whose summit is 45 kilometres long and 20 kilometres wide. We will visit the Crystal Valley where we find strange and beautiful quartz rocks and a bizarre landscape, hiking up and down, crossing creeks and boggy terrain, passing through natural labyrinths with great views the Gran Sabana and Kukenan Tepui window, enjoy a refreshing swim in the natural jacuzzi with red, sand and golden colours on its waters.

Overnight in tents set in a natural cavity. (Tutti i pasti).
