One of the natural forms of the earth that rises from the rest of the land and reaches heights that can amaze us. Mountains are not usually used for agriculture because the climate and conditions are not the same, but they are mostly used for resource extraction. For adventurers, climbers, mountaineers and climbers, mountaineering is a fun activity that brings a sense of joy and success in their lives.

The Eastern Kanoko Mountains and the Western Kanoko Mountains are divided by the Rupononi River. Prominent species that live in the land of the Kanoku Mountains include the giant otter, the harpy eagle and the arapima.

5. Pakaraima Mountains

Alternative name: Pakrima Mountains

Its highest peak is Mount Roraima with a height of 2810 meters above sea level and is the highest peak in Guyana. Many rivers originate from these mountains and fall dramatically as they flow down, forming some of the most beautiful waterfalls. Kaieteur Falls in Guyana is a stunning example.
