The Angel Fall In 1937, Jimmy Angel an adventurous and treasure hunter from his small airplane Ryan Flamingo was surprised to see the beauty of this natural wonder:...the highest waterfall in the world.
The Angel Fall The Angel Fall is 979 meters high, its twenty times higher than the Niagaras waterfall. This visual impact was so huge for Jimmy Angel that he forgot the gold prospector and he devoted his live to the Waterfall. He called it the Angel Fall. However, the true discoverers were the Pemon. This local indians tribe already knew it and called it the Churún Merú.
The Tepuyes The tepuy is a flat top mountain ending with vertical walls. The highest tepuy is Roraima, the Gran Verde Azulado. It is 2810 meters high. At the top is the Triple Point, the landmark where meet the borders of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana.
The Tepuyes Auyantepuy is one of the largest and better known tepuy.From this tepuy is where the Angel Falls are formed. It is considered the Olympus of Arekunas (the gods of the Pemons). Its called the Mountain of the hell or the Devils mountain. When the weather is raining you can see a lot of impressive falls (from 200 to 300 meters high).
Canaima lagoons The lagoon is fed by several small water falls. Something really surprising is the colour of the water and the sand. Due to the abundance of minerals, the water takes a red colour and the sand has a beautiful light pink, because of the presence of quartz. One of the most beautiful places in Venezuela is Canaima lagoon and its surroundings.
Canaima lagoons With an aerial view you can appreciate how the Carrao river, after bording the Auyantepuy and being fed by water coming from the Angel Falls, splits in several streams, and forming islands.
