Highest Waterfall in the World - Angel Falls

At fifteen times the height of Niagara Falls, The Angel Falls is the worlds highest waterfall, with a height of 979 meters (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 meters (2,647 ft). It is located in the Canaima National Park , an UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolivar State , Venezuela . It is one of the country's top tourist destinations despite its isolated location.

The height of the falls is so great, that before getting anywhere near the ground, the water is atomized by the strong winds and turned into mist. And the mist can be felt a mile (1.6 km) away! The base of the falls feeds into the Kerep River (alternatively known as the Rio Gauya), which flows into the Churun River , a tributary of the Carrao River.

The History:
Apparently, the falls were not known to the outside world until American aviator Jimmie Angel flew over them on November 16, 1933 during a flight searching for a valuable ore bed. Returning on October 9, 1937, Angel tried to land his Flamingo monoplane, El Rio Caronia at the top of the mountain, but the plane was damaged when the wheels sank into the marshy ground. He and his three companions, including his wife Marie, were then forced to descend the mountain on foot. It took them 11 days to make their way back to civilization, but news of their adventure spread, and the waterfall was named Angel Falls in his honor. Angel's plane remained on top of the mountaintop for 33 years before being lifted out by helicopter. It was restored at the Aviation Museum in Maracay and now sits outdoors on the front of the airport at Ciudad Bolvar.
