Seven Most Wonderful Waterfalls in the World – Angel Falls

Seven Most Wonderful Waterfalls in the World – Angel Falls

Not that volume alone is important from the point of view of the spectator. When the drop of the falls is spectacular, then so is the spectacle.  To be utterly dwarfed by the sight you see is completely awesome. The Angel Falls, with a total height of 3,212 feet, are the world’s highest waterfall, with the tallest single span of falling water on the planet. The Venezuelan Penom people called ‘Kerepakupai merú’ – “waterfall of the deepest place”. James “Jimmy” Angel made it known to the world in October 1937.  This incredible wonder of the natural world really does have to be seen to be believed.
