We stayed in Canaima and the best view for the falls was by small plane. If you are phobic about small planes flying over jungle, then the boat trip is a better option. However, if you that doesn't bother you, you will be rewarded by one of the more spectacular sights the world has to offer. Widely thought to be... More

Before going to see the Angel Falls, get a copy of David Nott's book 'Angels Four', David along with four others were the first to climb the falls. An incredible feat in 1971 without all the modern technical gear available today. The book gives an interesting narrative of the local community, the isolation but creativity of the indigenous people and... More

We set off at dawn from Waku Lodge in a lorry to get to the river. Then we had a four hour canoe ride, sometimes getting out so the rapids could be negotiated, breakfast on the way. Then we were told about an hours walk to the falls. I was so exhausted! I thought I was quite fit but my... More

I visited Angel Falls in the middle of October. I did the 3 days- 2nights tour that most people do there. Everything seperately and all together are mind-blowing! Canaima lagoon with the waterfalls , the community, the tepuis on the way to Angel Falls, the canoe ride(Curiara) and of course Angel Falls itself ! this tour will take your breath... More

I travelled with a friend to Angel Falls about a week ago - what an utterly amazing place. Getting there isn't for the faint hearted though. First our flight from Caracas to Puerta Ordaz was cancelled due to heavy rain, next morning, rush for flight,then taken quickly off plane at Puerta Ordaz (where we should have spent the night !)...

We did the 3D/2n tour with Angel Eco Tours and had an amazing time. After arriving via Puerto Ordaz/Ciudad Bolivar, we stayed at Tapuy Lodge. In the afternoon we went by boat to the Sapo Falls and walked behind them (bring your swimming costume!). A unique experience. Next day we set out on a 5 hour boat trip up the... More

The highest waterfalls in the world. They don't disappoint. It's a bit of a mission to get to though. You have to fly to Canaima (only way to get there) then it's approx a 4hr boat ride to the camp sites where you sleep in hammocks. They are more comfortable than you think. Views of Angel falls are possible from... More

We arrive to Canaima and then took a Curiara for 5 hours to the base of the Angel Falls, then we walk through the jungle for 2 more hours to see it. It's a really long trip, but it worth it every single minute. I recommend to bring light cloths, with soft colors, not neon. Repellent, Sun protector, a very... More

Three friends of mine and I just visited Venezuela for two weeks September 2015. Andreas from hike-venezuela made arrangements for all the itineraries from picking up at Caracas airport to final dropping off. None of us speak Spanish and we were all survived with many people's friendly help. I didn't feel unsafe to visit specially most of the time was... More

This is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It is a long day trip from Canaima but it is totally worth it. Your health and body must been in great condition for the hike. Getting there is a 3 hour ride up the river in a very small boat, and then a 2 hour hike to the natural observation... More
