Mount Roraima is located on the border between Guyana, Venezuela and Brazil. The highest of the Pakaraima chain of tepui plateau, it culminates at 2,810 meters at Maverick rock. Most hikers approach the mount from the Venezuelan side, from the Paraitepui village where local Pemon Indian guides can be hired. It usually takes 2 days to hike up at the top.

This is the view on the Breithorn glacier, also known as the easiest 4,000 m climb from all the Alpin peaks... Because you actually don't have to walk all the way up there, thanks to the Klein Matterhorn cable car that will take you up to 3,820 m ;-)

This is "Predjama Castle", one of the most popular attractions in Slovenia, located about 11 kilometers from the city of Postojna, south west of the country. It was built in the mountain, right at one of the entrances to a four level karst cave, which deepest level is run through by a river!

Canada: A hike with a view

Canada: A hike with a view | Wicked! | Scoop.it

This is the Moraine lake, in Alberta, which is among the best hikes in Canada according to Digest Canada. Their advice: Take the short Rock Pile Trail for a beautiful view over the lake and surrounding mountains... and do double check for any incoming grizzly bear with Parks Canada before going in ;-)
