Angel Falls

The trek out to Angel Falls starts with a quick dugout canoe ride to some shallow rapids. Then, you get out and hike around them for about 45 minutes.

Then, back in the boat for 3.5 hours. It’s wet. And, if we weren’t already thoroughly soaked, it rained on us too.

It’s a long way to go in a tiny little boat, but it’s worth it. We lucked out and had a clear view of the falls from the river as we pulled up.

From there, it was straight onto the trail. Again, everything and everybody was soaked. Still fun, and still pretty amazing.

It’s the tallest waterfall in the world. Even Bode was impressed.

    Ignacio – It was named after Jimmie Angel – an American pilot who ‘discovered’ it and later crashed his plane there. His plane is now at the Ciudad Bolivar airport.
