Angel Falls-anythinggoes

Trip to Angel Falls – Venezuela

Posted on July 19, 2012 · Posted in blog

I just experienced the most fabulous and exciting adventure; I recently traveled to Venezuela to Canaima National Park. The trip was with  Paul Stanley’s Angel-Eco tours  and Karen Angel of the Jimmie Angel Historical Projects as a tribute to James “Jimmie” Crawford Angel (1899-1956), who found the most spectacular water falls while he was on a solo flight November 18, 1933 into Churun Canyon known as Devil’s Canyon on the north side of Auyántepui (Devil House); here to his amazement he found what is now recognized to those who have ventured into the Venezuelan jungle to witness the astonishing Angel Falls. The  worlds longest dropping waterfall (3,212 feet/979 meters) – exquisite rushing water that at times it appears there are twin waterfalls or additional waterfalls, just gliding down over the most magnificent canyon wall.  When the water isn’t overflowing from the previous evening’s rainfall, there is a water-hole for swimming at the second tier.

El Salto Angel está conformado por numerosas y abundantes caídas de agua las cuales se deslizan sutilmente por las paredes del cañón. Cuando las caídas no son tan abundantes, se crea una especie de piscina natural justo en el segundo nivel o corte llano donde las personas se pueden dar un chapuzón.  Leer más…I just experienced the most fabulous and exciting adventure; I recently traveled to Venezuela to Canaima National Park.
