Mount Roraima

Canaima National Park, Venezuela

Famed Mount Roraima is known for its ominous beauty. Springing forth from the ground, its 1,300-foot--high cliffs are bordered by three different countries: Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana. Die-hard climbers can attempt to scale it, but the majority of visitors take the two-day hiking path to its summit. Having inspired people for centuries, the mountain is of great significance in indigenous folklore and was recently featured in Pixar’s Up. Perhaps you’ll find yourself inspired here as well.
