==Sleep==It gets cold and wet on Roraima. There are about 10 habitable caves on the plateau in which one camps. This is very welcome but in peak periods the caves are all occupied and there is plenty of evidence of tents being pitched on the flatter stone pavement with stones to secure guy ropes.
You'll need to join a tour to climb to the summit of Roraima, but select your tour company carefully. '''Backpackers Tours''' comes well recommended by other travelers and offers good food, tents and guide. 'Aponwau Tours', on the other hand, may be the cheapest option but is reportedly a false economy: reports of broken stoves, shoddy equipment and a shortage of food.
Try to get a written contract from any company before paying.
==Stay safe==I had very bad diarrhea on the return trip. Hygeine Hygiene standards suffer in difficult conditions and the two camps before the base of the cliffs are not models of hygeinecleanliness. Be very careful as travellers traveller's diarrhea can persist after it seems cured and is debiltating.  ==Get out==
