Angel Falls in Venezuela

Angel Falls in Venezuela

Waterfall Anhelь - it is the highest waterfall in the world. Water falls from the top of a mountain with a height of Auyan Tepuy 978 meters above sea level. The very same forest surrounded by impassable jungle.

Discovered waterfall Venezuelan traveler Ernesto Sanchez La Cruz. However, more widespread fame Angel Falls in Venezuela received only 1933 year. In search of minerals, these places flew pilot James Angel on the expedition monoplane. With him on board were his wife and two passengers. In the air, there was a failure, but the pilot was able to land the plane on a flat, marshy mountain top. Only 1966 with the help of a helicopter managed to take this monoplane with a "long stay". The pilot and passengers were able to reach civilization only through 11 Days. For this, they not only had to be hacked through the jungle, but down from the mountain over the falls. Such a feat could not be seen. On top of a mountain set an exact copy of a monoplane "Flamingo".

    Themselves down from the mountains? How they did it. I think the Angel Falls is not paying due attention. And for good reason!

    Waterfall in itself a fascinating spectacle. Hold it next to a waterfall and a feeling, you're cleared of this vital mud.
