09-Jan-2007 -- De paseo por la gran sabana, el día 9 de enero, decidimos llegar hasta la comunidad de Paraitepuy de Roraima, para contemplar la maravillosa vista de la cadena oriental de tepuyes mas altos de nuestra geografía, El Roraima, El Kukenan , Yuruani, el ilu tepuy , el tramen y el kraurin. Camino a la comunidad de Paraitepuy, vemos que estamos muy cerca de la CP N5W61, decidimos entonces llegar hasta el pueblo para ver los tepuyes y conocer la logística para la subida al monte Roraima que es nuestro próxima aventura. De regreso de esta comunidad intentamos visitar la confluencia, pero solo llegamos a 1600 metros, ya que el sendero que nos llevaba directo al punto, llegaba a un bosque espeso, y como andábamos solas no nos atrevimos a pasar. Decidimos regresar al vehiculo y dejar la visita para el próximo viaje a la zona que será muy pronto y en la que podamos encontrar un lugareño que nos acompañe. Sin embargo llegar hasta este lugar es maravilloso, contemplar los tepuys nos lleno de una energía increíble.

09-Jan-2007 -- In our trip for the Gran Sabana, on January 9, we decide to visit the community of Paraitepuy de Roraima to contemplate the wonderful view of the highest oriental chain of tepuys (Tepuy in pemon language means mount with flat top.) of our geography: Roraima, Kukenan, Yuruani, Ilu, Tramen and Kraurin Tepuys. In route to the Paraitepuy community, we see that we are very near from N5W61, we decide then to arrive to the town to see the tepuys and to know the logistics for the ascent to the mount Roraima that is our next adventure. On the way back we try to visit the confluence, we only got to within 1600 meters since the path that took us in the direction of the point ended on a thick forest and we decided not to proceed since we where by ourselves. We decide to return to the vehicle and to leave the visit for the next trip to the area that will be very soon and then we will ask a villager to join us.

However to come to this place was wonderful, to contemplate the tepuys filled us with an incredible energy.
