One of the magical part of Venezuela for me, is and it will always be El Salto Angel. For those of you who doesn’t know this magical place, it is the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall with with a height of 979 meters (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 meters (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyantepui Mountain in the Canaima National Park a UNESCO world heritage site in the Grand Sabana region of Bolivar State.
This waterfall is on the top of the Tepuy ( one of the oldest formation on earth). The word tepuy means “house of the gods” in the native tongue of the Pemon the indigenous people who inhabit the Gran Sabana.
Angel Falls is one of Venezuela’s top tourist attractions, though a trip to the falls is a complicated affair. The falls are located in an isolated jungle. A flight from Puerto Ordaz or Ciudad Bolivar is required to reach Canaima camp, the starting point for river trips to the base of the falls. River trips generally take place from June to December, when the rivers are deep enough for use by the Pemon guides. During the dry season (December to March) there is less water seen than in the other months. The falls receive roughly 900,000 visitors per year.
