Mount Roraima

Mount Roraima

This weird mountain serves as the triple border point of Venezuela (85% of its territory), Guyana (10%) and Brazil (5%). It is the highest of the Pakaraima chain of tepui plateaus in South America. It look unusual, rather than finishing in a peak like most mountains, its top is a large plateau. On the summit plateau, it rains almost every day of the year. Almost the entire surface of the summit is bare sandstone, with only a few bushe and algae present.
