Angel Falls is located in southeastern
Venezuela. It is famous for being the highest waterfall in the world with a drop of 3,212
feet. The waterfall drops from the plateau of Auyan-Tepui (means "Devil's
Mountain"), which is located in the highland area known as La Gran Sabana. The region
in which Angel Falls is located is covered with mesas, tropical rain forests, and
Angel Falls was discovered by James C. Angel in 1935, who was searching for gold in his plane. Today, tourists can view the falls in small planes.
