Salto Angel; or Parakupà Venà, which means the highest point drop, is the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall with a height of 979 and a dive of 807 meters. bordering the Auyán-tepui mountain in the Canaima National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Canaima), a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolivar. Due to the height of the waterfall and the friction of air and When it is dry and there is a little wind, the waterfall is literally vaporized half way.The name comes from its discoverer, the US pilot, Jimmie Angel, called the Parakupa vena or Kerepakupai meru, and was considered together with the mountain a sacred place. The waterfall is in the heart of the Bolivar State Amazon rainforest in the south of Venezuela, and to reach it requires f they are a two day excursion through the river or overtaking the area with small planes. Although scanned for the first time in the early twentieth century by explorer Ernesto de Santa Cruz, the waterfall was not known in the world until its official discovery in 1933 by an American aviator, James Crawford Angel, who was flying over the area looking for some value mining basin. In October 1937, he returned to the area and managed to land with his small plane on the top near the top of the waterfall. Since then waterfalls are currently called "Angel Jump" in his honor. After the landing, Angel's seaplane, a Flamingo, leapt on the damp and muddy ground of the Auyan-tepui top and stayed there for 33 years before being taken out of a helicopter. Jimmy Angel and his three companions were able to descend Mount Auyantepui and reach the first civilized center only after 11 days. Jimmy Angel airplane, named El Río Caroní, is displayed in front of the Ciudad Bolívar Airport Terminal; what can be seen as a flamboyant lightning flash on the top is just a patch that indicates the exact position. The official altitude was determined by a survey carried out by the National Geographic Society in 1949 (article: Jungle Journey to the World's Highest Waterfall by Ruth Robertson). In the book by David Nott, Angels Four, the story of the first climbers who were able to climb the almost vertical wall of Auyan Tepui (the devil's mountain) was told to the top of the falls. Waterfalls are one of the main tourist attractions in Venezuela. The total altitude difference is nearly 20 times higher than that of the Niagara Falls. The largest of the jumps exceeds 807 meters, revealing itself as the longest ever. You can buy a package that includes only a simple panorama over the falls. The latter are not visible on cloudy days and therefore need to be informed on the weather conditions before embarking on the flight. During the dry season of the North Amazon (December to March) there is much less water on the summit, but it is more common to find serene skies and enjoy the optimum visibility. The whole excursion takes about 24 hours.
