Angel Falls, Venezuela

With such a flowing and beautiful name, rest assured that Angel Falls is the perfect place to spend some of your vacation time. The waterfall was named after Jimmie Angel, an explorer who landed his plane on the single mountain in efforts to find gold, but he instead found the waterfall. Angel Falls, located in Venezuela, is the highest waterfall in the world with a height of 3,212 ft and a plunge of 2,648 ft. The water cascades down over the Auyantepui Mountain, which is located in the Canaima National Park. The water then flows into the Kerep River. The waterfall is one of the country’s most prized and visited locations though getting there requires a short plane ride.
