5D/4N CANAIMA NATIONAL PARK
From SGD 2628
Between the rainforest of the Amazon Basin and the watershed of the Orinoco River, is a rugged wall of remote mountains and deep, heavily forested canyons of Canaima National Park. It’s distinguished by its numerous tepuis, massive flat-topped mountains that rise from grassy savanna and are often covered in mist. Over the time erosion carved steep-walled valleys and crevices into the plateau leaving fragments of it completely isolated. The region remains one of the most thinly settled and one of the most beautiful of all natural areas in South America. From one of these Tepuis plummets the world’s highest waterfall: Angel Falls (979 meters). The fall is more than twice as high as the Empire State Building and three times higher than the Eiffel Tower and these will be the highlights of your Venezuelan adventure.

After we board our dugout canoes at Canaima beach, and cross Canaima lagoon with impressive views of its seven waterfalls. A short walk through savannah, and we start walking behind! the impressive water curtain of falls. It is a truly exhilarating experience: a cliff to the right, the roaring falls to the left, and water spray everywhere. Once on the other side of the curtain, we walk to the top of the falls for a wonderful view of the Tepuy landscape. Return to Canaima beach. The fall might have less water in the dry season.

We enter Churún river, winding its way through the spectacular Devil’s Canyon. One more turn, and we see the highest waterfall on earth! We leave our canoes, and walk for an hour through virgin rainforest, until arriving at a rocky ledge. We suddenly stand before the magnificence of the Angel Falls, a few hundred meters away, becoming drenched by the frenzy of spray. A truly unforgettable and awesome sight! We can take a refreshing bath in the lagoon at the base of the fall. Lunch. In the afternoon return to Canaima.
