Angel Falls – Venezuela

The Angle falls, said to be a magical and beautiful place. The falls gets its name from the American by the name of Jimmy Angel. The adventurer crash landed his plane in the area in 1937. Before his discovery of the falls the locals, the Pemon Indians, knew the falls by Kerapukai-meru – Fall of the Deepest Place. They believed that evil spirits lived within the mists of the falls.

The falls are the highest uninterrupted falls in the world and are located in the Canaima National Park of South East Venezuela. Plummeting 979 meters from the top of the Auyan tepui (roaring mountain) in to the Devils Canyon below.

Canaima National Park is an extraordinary region of sandstone tepuis (flat-topped mountains) formed billions of years ago, crossed by numerous rivers. The top of the Auyan tepuis is a maze of intricate rock formations and caves while at the bottom of the falls in the devils canyon the land is covered in lush, dense rain-forest full of wildlife.

There are no trails through the forest to get to the falls. First you must take a canoe upriver negotiating the rapids, from here you have to hike for about an hour to the top of the mountain to a rocky outcrop. from there you get the amazing views that always make the hard work and effort worth it.

So for one hell of a view i would say this is a good place to start =D
