    I can't help but think of my favorite film in the world (Up) when I think of Angel Falls. While I didn't fly a house here, I did fly in a plane. It wasn't quite as adventurous as the multi-day boat journeys, but it was adventurous in its own way. (The pilots cracked open the windows to smoke cigarettes and invited two pretty girls up to the cockpit to chat.)

    I visited here before Up came out, but now, a visit would be just that much better. Still, though, flying over the world's highest waterfall, flown by two chain-smoking, flirting, mustachioed pilots, over a jungle filled with the greenest greens you've ever seen ... it was a pretty cool experience.

    Located deep within Canaima National Park is the worlds highest free falling waterfall. Angel Falls cascades down from the Auyan Tepuy Plateau, falling almost 1000 meters. With more than 800 meters of the fall being directly into open air, most of the water dissipates into the air as it free-falls. This creates Angel Falls' iconic, and beautiful, mist effect. Getting to Angel Falls can be an adventure, with boat tours to the area usually lasting three nights and two days. Even upon arrival there is a rather strenuous hike to the viewing area. Still, if you are in the area, it's a kind of life experience to see the highest waterfall in the world, so don't miss Angel Falls in Venezuela.

Description

At the world's highest waterfall, the water cascading over Angel Falls plunges so far -- 2,648 feet -- that much of it evaporates or turns to mist before it ever hits the ground. A UNESCO World Heritage Site in Venezuela's Gran Sabana region, you can either see the falls up close and personal via a river trip or jungle hike through Canaima National Park or take an airplane tour for an aerial view. No matter how you see it, hope for a clear day; low-lying clouds can obscure the top of the falls. But, even then, the long white cascade of water, dense jungle and sheer rock cliffs are a sight to see.
