Angel Falls

Angel Falls

Angel Falls or Salto Ángel is the world’s highest waterfall, dropping a total of 979m from the summit of the Auyan Tepuy, and with an 807m uninterrupted drop. It is known as Parekupa-meru by the local Pemon Indians but gained the Angel name after US pilot Jimmy Angel crash-landed on the Auyan Tepuy while searching the area for gold in 1937. Instead, he found this spectacular waterfall. After 11 days of trekking, he reached Kamarata and made his find public. His plane was later recovered and can be seen in front of the airport at Ciudad Bolivar. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Canaima lagoon too. Take a walk to the waterfall of El Sapo, where you can walk behind the water, offering great photo opportunities.
