Trek to Kaieteur Falls
Are you looking for an exciting, meaningful trek that will challenge body and soul? Then this tour is for you! The overland trek to Kaieteur Falls is one filled with challenge and excitement. Our aim is to reach the top of one of the world's oldest and remotest geological formations—the area being about 2 billion years old. These are the remnants of the sandstone sediments that covered the metamorphic rocks of the area and were created by erosion over 200 million years ago. The majority of these mountains range from 6,500 to 8,800 feet (2000 to 2700 meters). Roraima is the tallest of all, at 9,219 feet (2810 meters). This area contains an estimated 20,000 different plant species of which 35 percent are endemic, making it one of the richest tropical wilderness areas on Earth. It also has the lowest human population density of any tropical rainforest region, consisting mainly of Amerindian cultures, making it one of the few places on Earth where all options for conservation are available! You will see large tank bromeliads, poison frogs, the Cock-of-the-rock bird, morpho butterflies and many more interesting species of flora and fauna.
