Is there anything more beautiful than a giant, stunning waterfall?

Angel Falls -- also known as El Salto Ángel -- is located in southeastern Venezuela's Canaima National Park and is the tallest waterfall on Earth. It stands at 3,212 feet tall, with water pouring down from a flat-topped plateau called Auyán-Tepuí (“Devils Mountain” in English).

Accessing Angel Falls requires a bit of a trek, so it's a site made for adventurers. If you can make it though, it's totally worth it.

Angel crashed near the top of the falls in the year 1937, and then alerted the world to what he had found. This is one of the top Venezuela vacation spots, and an experience that no visitor should miss.
