Angel Falls ranks among the most sought after amazing natural wonders of the world. In Pemon language, Angel Falls is called as "Kerepakupai meru" meaning "waterfall of the deepest place". Angel Falls used to be a holy site for the ancient Inca civilization and is still considered sacred by local Venezuelans.

What Is Unique About Angel Falls?
    Angel Falls has the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall at 979m (3,212 ft) with the tallest single drop in the world. At a high altitude like this, the water of the Falls gets vaporised by the strong wind and turns into mist, before reaching the ground. The base of the Falls joins the Kerep River. It further flows into the Chrurn River, which serves as a tributary of the Carrao River.

Where Is It Located?
       It is located in the Canaima National Park, in the Gran Sabana region of Boliver State, Venezuela. This region is also known as Guyana Highlands, which is one of the five tropical zones of Venezuela.


Who Discovered Angel Falls?
       The discovery of Angel Falls has many variations. Sir Walter Raleigh, a famed English writer and explorer is said to have mentioned about the Falls. In 1933, American aviator Jimmie Angel brought the discover into the world  when he flew over them and hence the Falls are named as Angel Falls, after him. However, the local Indians, the Permones, already knew it and called it 'Churun Meru'

What Makes Angel Falls A Favourite With Tourists Worldwide?
       Angel Falls is one among the top tourist attractions of Venezuela. But a trip of the Falls is an expensive ride. As the Falls are located in an isolated jungle region of Venezuela, a flight from the Venezuela capital Caracas takes off for the Canaima camp. Canaima camp is the starting point for river trips to the base of the Falls. June to December is the usual season for these river trips.
