The flattest mountain in the world-mount roraima

Mount Roraima is a table-shaped mountain with steep edges and flat top. It is about 14 kilometers long, 5 kilometers wide and 2810 meters above sea level.

The geological background belongs to the middle and late Proterozoic caprock on the edge of the Guiana Shield, which is one of the oldest caprocks in South America. Locals have never attempted the challenge of climbing Mount Roraima.

From the 18th century to the early 19th century, several scientists, geographers, botanists and anthropologists arrived at the top of the mountains. They discovered fossils of large animals on the top, which were later confirmed to be dinosaur fossils.
