Visit Venezuela: The Angel Falls
Visit Venezuela and did not visit the Angel Falls is like going to Romeand not visit the Coliseum. The Angel Falls are located in the Canaima National Park, in the middle of the Amazon forest, and with its 980 meters is the highest waterfall in the world, but much less famous of the most popular Niagara Falls or Iguazu Falls. Perhaps because the Angel Falls must be conquered, reach it is tiring, a real adventure: you have to walk, navigate the river, walk again.
But when you finally reach to the mirador and admire the Angel Falls in all its majesty, the wonder and amazement make you forget all the effort made to get up there!
And it is from Canaima that you can do other walking tours that will leave you speechless, to discover the nature of this part of Venezuela.
In fact, you can go to visit the spectacular Cueva Kavac, a deep canyon crossed by a river where you can swim. Also you can go to the discovery of Sapo Falls, where you have the opportunity to walk behind a waterfall: a unique experience! These are excursions not to be missed, only a little hard, in full contact with nature and with the communities of Indians who inhabit this area.
