Photo and caption by joao tajra

In a sunny summer afternoon, Mt. Roraima stands high above the clouds. The odd format, with the flat top, is characteristic of this ancient land formation. At above 3,000 mts above sea level, Mt. Roraima attracts hundreds of visitors every year. Climbing the wall, alongside with waterfalls of more than 600 meters high, takes between 2 and 4 days. On the lower right side of the photo, one can notice the tiny trail to the mountain.

Location: Santa Elena de Uairen, Venezuela
