Access to the entrance is made by the city of Santa Elena in Venezuela. Already, for what is in Brazil, from Boa Vista, capital of Roraima, the nearest base of the hill, should go to Pacaraima, a small town that borders Santa Elena. It is possible to hire agencies in Brazil that take you to Santa Elena and the sights, or share a taxi, if you want to save, to make the trip.
