Angel Falls

Angel Falls, named after American aviator Jimmy Angel who first flew over it in 1933, is the tallest uninterrupted waterfall in the world.  It plunges more than three thousand feet over Auyán-tepui mountain in Canaima National Park in central eastern Venezuela.  Visitors access it from Canaima camp, a settlement located on the Carrao River which runs through the park.
