Angel Falls in Venezuela – the world’s highest waterfall, with a height of 979 m (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft).
The name “Angel Falls” was given after Jimmie Angel, a US aviator who first flew over the falls in a plane. The common Spanish name is “Salto Ángel” but there is some interest in using the original indigenous Pemon term (“Kerepakupai Vená”, meaning “waterfall of the deepest place”).
