Mount Venamo

Known as Cerro Venamo in the Spanish language, Mount Venamo stands 1,890 meters and 6,201 feet in elevation on the border between GUYANA and VENEZUELA. Also named Waukauyengtipu (“mountain of the butterfly’s place”) by Arekuma Amerindians, Mt. Venamo is located in the Pakaraima mountain range, in western Guyana’s Cuyuni-Mazaruni region (formerly Mazaruni Potaro), and in eastern Venezuela’s BolĂ­var state. The headwaters of the Venamo (Wenamu) River flow northward along the Guyana-Venezuela border for about 120 kilometers — until it reaches the Cuyuni River, which then flows to the Atlantic Ocean. Finally, the snowless mountain can be nearly accessible on Venezuela National Highway 10 and is found in Venezuela’s Parque Nacional Canaima (Canaima National Park).
