Venezuela: Angel Falls

It is the world’s highest waterfall, with a height of 979 m(3.212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyantepui mountain in the Canaima National Park. Most waterfalls of the world get its water from lakes, rivers or snowmelt whereas Angel falls have its source from the tropical rainfalls. Because of its elevation most of its water evaporates or become mist and gets blown away by strong winds before it reaches the base. It is surrounded by thousands of trees enclosed in mountains areas. It’s beautiful scenery with its awesome heights and the blue water is what attracts most of the travelers.
