Welcome to Amazonas
In contrast to the Brazilian Amazon, Venezuela’s Amazonas state is topographically diverse, with tepuis as one of the most striking features. Though not as numerous as those in the Gran Sabana, the tepuis give the green carpet of rainforest a distinctive appearance. At the southernmost part of Amazonas, along the border with Brazil, is the Serranía la Neblina, a scarcely explored mountain range containing the highest South American peaks east of the Andes.
The best time to explore the region is from October to December, when the river level is high enough to navigate but rains have started to ease.
