From Tukeit you will ascend the mountain to the top of Kaieteur fall – 3hrs hike. The ascent winds its way up the mountain
through changing vegetation as the altitude rises. You will pass cool mountain streams where it is impossible to cross without a
dip. The final stage of the climb is known as ‘Oh my God’ mountain. Did you say that you liked challenges? This climb will
challenge you both physically and mentally. With your backpack strapped securely unto your back and your water bottle within
easy reach, you begin your ascend quite smartly. But on reaching the top all is forgotten as you catch your first glimpse of the
mighty Kaieteur Falls. The feeling of achievement is indescribable as you proudly view the grandeur of the mighty Kaieteur
