It's about a 12 hour trip from Paraitepui to the top of the Roraima tepui. The trip is broken by an overnight camp either along the Río Tek or the Río Kukenan, 4 1/2 hours from Paraitepui. If you have enough time, you can also push another three hours uphill to the base camp.

Mist and clouds are a usual sight and signal the cloud forest area ahead.
