Trip Highlights
First day, we'll depart from Santa Elena and set camp at the foot of Mountain Chiriyaken near a beautiful lagoon. Next day, after breakfast, prepare yourself because we'll hike to the top of the mountain (1650 m). Once up there, we'll explore the magical world of this flat-top mountain, enjoy a panoramic view of the Gran Sabana, and sleep in tents near the abyss of the mountain. Next day, back to Santa Elena where we'll take some time to spot orchids or carnivorous plants, and with some luck see anteaters, dears or even a jaguar! This is a great trip for beginners to get the feel for trekking.
