Welcome to
Eastern Tepuis

Stretching for a relatively small span of 60 kilometres, the Eastern Tepuis are also known as the Roraima–Ilú range. The characteristic flat-topped mountains run along the border of Guyana, Venezuela and a small part of Brazil. They are remnants of an ancient sandstone plateau reputed to be billions of years old that once covered an area of roughly 200,000 square miles in the heart of the Amazon. Over millions of years, erosion left 100 tepuis across the region, ranging from 1000 to 3000 feet high. The main summits of this chain of mountains are Roraima-tepui, Kukenán-tepui, Yuruaní-tepui, Wadakapiapué-tepui, Karaurín-tepui, Ilú-tepui, and Tramen-tepui.

THINGS TO SEE AND DO

Rock Climbing

For climbers, the tepuis represent some of the biggest and least explored rock walls on the planet. Unlike the tepuis in neighbouring Venezuela, many have never been climbed due to lack of awareness in the climbing community, difficult access, and sheer cliffs that require advanced climbing skills and equipment.

SAVE Travel

Scientists say that the tepuis represent some of the oldest stone in existence on planet earth. Due to the isolation of the flat-topped mountains, the flora and fauna that have adapted to the ecosystems on the tepui summits represent a treasure-trove where countless new species may one day be discovered.
