Time to explore the summit of Monte Roraima crossing borders between Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil.
Came the most difficult part of the expedition, time to really face the slope and reach the top.
Mount Roraima expedition day bay day. Contrary to the weather forecast that it would be clear in the morning and then cloudy, Roraima woke up cloud-capped and cleared up throughout the day. Day2
Now comes the most awaited moment in Adventure Bloggers – the trail inside the canyon of Itaimbezinho, in Aparados da Serra National Park. The adventure had been on my wishing list for ages, and in December I finally entered the huge crack and saw the slopes upwards.
In the northern border of Brazil there is a mysterious mountain where you only reach by foot or helicopter. It was 90 km hiking in six days with no comfort and totally integrated in nature.
Maybe I found the smallest beach in the world in Cadaques, Spain. The clear iced waters from the mediterranean at Cap de Creus National Park provide beautiful landscapes. As known by Salvador Dali and the queen Isabel. The painter was born in the region and the majesty had spent her vacations on a beach house dated from 1853.
Mount Roraima is one of the hardest trails I have ever done. Even wearing suitable clothing and equipment and being an expert at this kind of trekking, it is vital to have specific physical preparation. I confess I failed; I did not work out for months like I did before. It just happens that the trip was an opportunity, I decided to accept the challenge three days before leaving and, even with the difficulties, I am sure it was worthwhile.
On top of the lost world I found the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen in my life. Buques, mandalas, weather-beaten trees, the noise of running water, crystals sprouting, flowers blooming in the rocks, sandy and muddy winding paths, puddles and rocks full of meaning.
Poço Azul is a must for those visiting Chapada Diamantina. A crystal water-filled cave where it is possible to see the rocky bottom, even at 16m deep.
Adrenalin hits you down the rapids and increases, followed by a wave of terror when you see where the bath is going to be. I had already done this tour, but not in this waterfall, neither with this amount of water!
