Standing at a breathtaking 150 m (492 ft) above the tropical rainforest, Voltzberg Dome offers visitors a spectacular vantage point over their verdant surroundings. First explored in the 19th century by the German explorer Franz Voltz, the mountain summit commands views over a sparsely populated area largely untouched by mass tourism. Visit the area for a chance to go back in time to a place unchanged for centuries. Voltzberg Dome is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Sipaliwini District Edition.

The spot was once the place to sleep beautifully overlooking the river. The next day a hefty walk with climbing on muddy paths, but each meter!

Please note, these are steep walls and no fences, so in case of rain (and thus smoothness) I would not recommend the climb. Especially since we eventually found the trek through the jungle more beautiful than the climb.
