Angels Falls is located in Canaima National Park, Venezuela and with its height of 979 metres (3,211 feet) and a plunge of 807 metres (2,368 feet), it is the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall. For comparison the Angel Falls is three times taller than the Eiffel Tower.

The waterfall, a huge tourist attraction in Latin America, was named after Jimmie Angel, an American aviator, who was the first person to fly over the falls on November 18th, 1933.

This astonishing miracle of nature is surrounded by a jungle and the trip to the falls is bit complicated. There are flights from Puerto Odaz or Ciudad Bolivar to Canaima camp, the starting point of the adventure, which is situated 50 km from the Angel Falls. However, before you decide to buy a flight ticket, you must prove that you have been vaccinated against yellow fewer.

The travel continues by river in a motorized canoe where you can enjoy the beautiful, yet untouched flora and fauna.

Due to its nature, the best time to visit the Angel Falls is between the months of May and November. From December to April the rainfall is infrequent and the water evaporates, so the big, powerful falls diminishing to dribble.
