by jeovanabastosAbout Me:i'm brazilian from Manaus Amazonas. it's been two and a half years since I left my city to travel by bicycle through countries in South America. I want to share my experiences that I had during those years read more

6 days / July 2017

Highs & Lows

The Jacuzzis, Valley of crystals and Mirador la ventana are the most impressive that can be seen at the top of the mountain

Some days it rained a lot so we made it difficult to cross the rivers as there weren't bridges

Itinerary Overview

We were a group of 4 people traveling by bicycle, we left Brazil for Venezuela with little fear for everything they had told us, because Venezuela was not going through a good political and economic moment.

We crossed the border without any problem, it took two days on a bicycle to San Francisco de Yuruaní, which is the closest community to Monte Roraima, where the natives are, most of whom are tourist guides because they know this region well.

In this community we had the opportunity to meet the natives, the culture and something very particular about them is that they have their native language called taurepan and also speak Spanish

Já tivemos o contato de um guia nativo muito bem recomendado por outros viajantes, que se encarregariam de nos levar ao Monte Roraima, passamos dias incríveis em sua casa com sua linda família.
