Angel Falls

World Highest Waterfall

Venezuela’s spectacular natural wonders, is famous for being one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, and also the highest uninterrupted waterfalls.

Angel Falls also known as Kerepakupai Vená (‘waterfall of the deepest place’), is the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall, with a height of 979 metres and a plunge of 807 m. It is located in Canaima National Park, and is one of Venezuela’s top tourist attractions.

Surrounded by an arresting landscape of tepuis, lush, green and forested lands, this spectacular cascade was named after James Crawford Angel, an American aviator, who became the first person to fly over the falls in the mid-20th century while searching for a valuable ore bed.

The Falls tumbles from a cleft near the summit of table top mountain. Auyán-tepu into what is known as Devil’s Canyon. The water then bursts into the void and plunges uninterrupted to the river and other cascades below. The height of the falls is so great that when it reaches the ground it becomes tiny particles that turns into fog.

This World Heritage site creates its own weather. In a season of highest water, the single waterfall splits into three streams – sometimes even more, which together become a giant veil of water. Because of its sheer height and remote location in the Canaiman wilderness, Angel Falls can be viewed from an aircraft or from a boat via the Churun River.
