Angel Falls

23 July, 2023

Angel falls is in the Canama National Park, Venezuela. It is the world’s tallest uninterrupted waterfall. Its height is 979 metres and the plunge is 807 metres. The Angel Falls has been designated as a World National Heritage site by UNESCO.

It is one of the world’s tourist attractions and the falls are in an isolated jungle area. Generally, the river trips take place from June to December.

We can see less water in the rivers than in the other months, because of the dry season.

The Angel Falls has been known since the mid-20th Century after Jimie Angel, a US aviator became the first person to fly over the waterfall. President, Hugo Chavez announced his intention to change the name to the purported original, indigenous Perman name, Kerepakupai-Meru meaning ‘Waterfall of the deepest place’.
