Venezuela 1996

Kukenám-Tepui (in near infrared light)

The main goal of our second trip to Venezuela was climbing the Monte Roraima table mountain (after we saw it from below in 1993). Compared to climbing Auyan-Tepui (what we did thirteen years later), the second Venezuelan table mountain tourists are allowed to ascend, Mt. Roraima is significantly easier.
