    Auyantepuy is just and amazing experience. It is overwhelm when you get to the top after a long walk and you see the dimensions of the tepuy. The Akanan?s logistics is great, the guide (Arturo) very professional and the porters team (pemones) are excellent. It is a great experience, but not for rookies, because it is needed a good physical condition and the adequate technical equipment
