Placed in the Gran Sabana and surrounded by the magnificent table-mountains, Canaima is perhaps the most spectacular place in Venezuela. The lagoon with its five waterfalls is unique. Located nearby is the highest cataract on earth, the Angel-fall, with a height of approximately 1000m.
The boat trip to the Angel fall through the rapids, passing alongside the soaring walls of the Auyantepuy, is a real adventure. Walking behind the water-curtain of the Sapo fall, is literally breathtaking.
