MOUNT RORAIMA

Mount Roraima also known as Tepuy Roraima and Cerro Roraima; the highest of the Pakaraima chain of tepui plateau in South America. First described by the English explorer Sir Walter Raleigh in 1596, its 31 km2 summit area consists on all sides of cliffs rising 400 meters (1,300 ft). The mountain also serves as the triple border point of Venezuela (85%), Brazil (5%) and Guyana (10% of the territory claimed by Venezuela).
Mount Roraima lies on the Guiana Shield in the southeastern corner of Venezuela’s 30,000-square-kilometre (12,000 sq mi) Canaima National Park forming the highest peak of Guyana’s Highland Range. The tabletop mountains of the park are considered some of the oldest geological formations on Earth, dating back to some two billion years ago in the Precambrian.
