The Angel Falls is the highest waterfall in the world and probably one of the most famous and visited for its height of 979 meters . It is generated by the fall of the Churún River from the Auyantepuy in the Canaima National Park in Bolívar state (Venezuela) and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994.
A must visit
Currently, the Angel Falls is one of the best tourist attractions in Venezuela . The indigenous people of the area in their time gave it the name of Kerepakupai-merú, which means waterfall to the deepest place. A true spectacle of nature worth visiting, it is something you will never forget.
Keep in mind that getting to the waterfall is not easy at all . It is quite isolated, in the middle of the jungle, and the tepuis, a class of especially steep plateaus, do not facilitate air access. Some tourists arrive by plane from Caracas or Ciudad Bolívar to take refuge in a camp in Canaima, but others prefer to arrive by waterway.
The trips usually take place between the months of June and December , which is when the rivers are deep enough to be navigated. In addition, it must be borne in mind that it is almost impossible to see the waterfall on a cloudy day, so it is better to check the weather forecasts before scheduling the visit.
