When leaving the city towards Brownsberg in the Brokopondo district, we make a stop at Paranam (the bauxite refinery) after about an hour's drive.

We'll take this opportunity to share some information about the bauxite industry in Suriname since the early 1900s. Arriving at the plateau at the top of the mountain (about 500 meters high), you can enjoy some fruit and a refreshing drink enjoy the beautiful views that Brownsberg offers, including the Van Blommenstein Reservoir. Then our experienced guide will take you for an interesting walk through the interior of Suriname to the idyllic waterfalls at a lower level. We then return uphill to the Brownsberg plateau to enjoy a hot lunch. At night you will be surrounded by the serene sounds of nature as you spend the night at the top of the mountain.

When you wake up in the morning in nature, you will be greeted by the roar of howler monkeys and the cheerful whistle of various birds. Between 6:00 AM and 6:30 AM you can enjoy a beautiful sunrise.
