In the Western part of Canaima National Park, Auyantepuy is one of the largest and better known "tepuy" (A flat-top mountain ending with vertical walls). From this tepuy is where the Angel Falls are formed.

The fall is 979 meters high (around 3000 ft.), and is the highest waterfall in the world.

"Angel Falls" is the Eighth Wonder of World. It's Venezuela's most touted tourist attraction, and rightly so.  The falls plunge for a near free-fall kilometer, some twenty Niagaras piled atop one another.  

 

There are two main ways to see the Angel Falls.

One of them is from the air in a small airplane.

The other one is an excursion that starts with a 3 hour and half navigation upstream the Carrao River, and then the Churun river. From there, a one hour walk through the jungle takes you to the base of the falls. 

The Angel Falls was named after the American aviator that discovered them in 1937. However, the local Indians, the Pemones, already knew it and called it the Churún Merú.
