Overflight of Angel Falls
An incredible flying experience that will take your through the dramatic jungle landscape of Canaima National Park, before circling above the highest waterfall on the planet - Angel Falls.
Departing from Canaima airstrip, a flight over the spectacular landscape of Canaima National Park and over the top of Angel Falls should be on every Venezuela itinerary. After approximately 20 minutes of flying you enter the impressive Devil's Canyon, and soon come face to face with the highest waterfall on earth: Angel Falls. Because of the variable weather in Canaima, it is highly recommendable to visit Angel Falls both by land/boat and also by air, allowing you the chance to see the falls from two very different perspectives.
It was 1935, when a stranger offered Jimmy Angel $5000 to fly him to an uncharted mountaintop in southern Venezuela, and the Missouri-born bush pilot, down on his luck, jumped at the chance. He flew his mysterious passenger to this mountain top, and after a bumpy landing in his Flamingo monoplane, pilot and passenger set up camp by a stream. In three days that followed, they found 75 pounds of gold. Returning to Caracas, Mr. Angel lost contact with his passenger. Trying to return, but without his treasure guide, he fruitlessly scoured the vast wilderness for the golden stream. One day he crash landed on top of a 2400 meter high mountain, the Auyan-tepuy. Two weeks later the exhausted adventurer emerged on foot, bearing with him knowledge of a secret the local Pemón Indians had guarded for centuries: Churún Merú, the world´s highest waterfall.
