Venturing into Venezuela’s Angel Falls

To view more photos and videos from Angel Falls explore the Angel Falls location page and browse the #angelfalls and #saltoangel hashtags.

Venezuela’s El Salto Ángel, or Angel Falls, is the tallest uninterrupted waterfall in the world. Towering over Canaima National Park at 979 meters (3212 feet), the waterfall is 19 times the height of Niagara Falls.

To access Angel Falls in the heart of Venezuela’s isolated jungle, visitors must have an adventurous spirit. After first flying to Puerto Ordaz or Ciudad Bolívar to reach the park, visitors are taken to the base of the falls by guides in dugout wooden canoes.

Though originally known as Kerepakupai Vená (“Waterfall of the Deepest Place”) in the indigenous language of the Pemon people, the falls came to be known by their current name in 1937 after American pilot Jimmie Angel’s plane crashed at the mouth of the falls.

God I’d like to go here. cause wow. and cause it’s what Paradise Falls was modeled after
