Angel Falls [Suggest Edits]
This is the waterfall with the highest uninterrupted drop in the world (3,212 feet or 979 meters). The falls were first discovered by American aviator Jimmie Angel in 1933 but it was not until Latvian explorer Aleksandrs Laime visited in 1955 that anyone 'officially' visited the site.
Short Run: You need to take a flight to Puerto Ordoz or Cuidad Bolivar and then take a boat in to arrive at the trailhead. Run in a little over a mile and a half to get to the falls.
