Owner description: Boasting a drop of more than 300 feet, Salto Aponguao is one of Venezuela's most attractive waterfalls. Salto Aponguao is hard to reach, but its beauty makes the trip to see it well worth the effort.

“Great waterfalls”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great to combine with Angel Falls and Canaima national park. A wonderful region to discover, take the time to enjoy the nature.

There are many walking possibilities around Salto Aponguao, including excursions, and you also can swim.

“a new visit to gran sabana”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Gran Sabana is a place you wont find in other countries, they have those flat mountains on the top called tepuy, to arrive to the Salto Aponwao you need to drive trought a rolute withouth asfalt, you will arrive in a small village where you need to take a boat trought a river and finally you arrive on the top of the watterfall, you can go down trought a pass where you are able to see the watterfall completly and come so close to take photos. You also can keep walking 45 minutes more and visit and place to take a nice bath,

All of La Gran Sabana is beautiful and Salto Aponguao of course too. there is a boat ride through the river with the same name Aponguao. you can spend the night in tents or rent a hut from the indios, and it is safe and clean.

“Just another amazing Venezuelan waterfall”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

You can't go to Canaima on your way to Angel Falls without a visit to Salto Aponguao. Canaima Lagoon is spectacular and with so many other waterfalls in Venezuela, Salto Aponguao doesn't get the recognition it should. High water season is spectacular. Get one of the locals to take you up close and personal and be amazed at the thunderous water and spray from this wonderful site.
