Angel Falls

Gran Sabana, Bolivar






Angel Falls est une cascade au Venezuela. C'est la plus grande chute d'eau ininterrompue au monde, avec une hauteur de 979 mètres et un plongeon de 807 mètres. La hauteur est si grande que l'eau tombante se transforme en brouillard avant de frapper le sol.


Arriver à Angel Falls n'est pas une tâche facile. La direction typique est de sauter sur la rivière près de Canaima et de monter en amont environ 4 heures. Cela vous mènera à Sendero Salto Angel, le sentier Angel Falls.


Angel Falls (Spanish: Salto Ángel; Pemon language: Kerepakupai Meru meaning "waterfall of the deepest place", or Parakupá Vená, meaning "the fall from the highest point") is a waterfall in Venezuela. It is the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall, with a height of 979 metres (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyán-tepui mountain in the Canaima National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Canaima), a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolívar State. The height figure, 979 m (3,212 ft), mostly consists of the main plunge but also includes about 400 metres (1,300 ft) of sloped cascade and rapids below the drop and a 30-metre (98 ft) high plunge downstream of the talus rapids.

The falls are along a fork of the Rio Kerepacupai Meru which flows into the Churun River, a tributary of the Carrao River, itself a tributary of the Orinoco River.
