The Ultimate Angel Falls Adventure
You gaze in awe at the powerful force of nature known as Angel Falls, whose waters plunge more than 3,000 feet. Angel Falls-the world's tallest waterfall-is one of the eight natural wonders of the world. You are there, after a long, hot hike, swimming in one of the refreshing natural pools beneath the towering falls.
You look up and see a rainbow created from the dance of the mist and the tropical sun. As you swim in the clear waters with your traveling companions, you sense a spiritual force, a mysterious energy that soothes you. You lean back and float in the natural pool and realize that you are far way from everything, but there is no other place that you would rather be.
Make This Angel Falls Hiking Dream A Reality
As part of this Angel-Eco Tours eight-day/seven-night adventure, you will travel through jungles, grasslands and hidden canyons in Canaima National Park. You will also meet members of the native Pemón tribe and experience their culture and lifestyle.
The sites and sounds of Angels Falls and the Canaima National Park are unforgettable. Canaima National Park is one of the world's great natural wonders and a hiker's paradise. On your Angel-Eco Tours' customized adventure tour, you will trek across grassy plains that never seem to end and rainforests that reach to the heavens.
You will also hike on and around vertical rock formations called tepuis that are hundreds of millions of years old. Tepuis have flat, slopping tops that are the sites of unique plant life. Scientists have called tepuis "islands in time" or "ecological islands" because of their unique ecosystems.
During your hiking adventure to Angel Falls and Canaima National Park, you will encounter a dazzling array of birds, such as macaws, toucans, parakeets, parrots, tanagers, hummingbirds and the illusive cock of the rock, as well as many other exotic species. The land is also rich in exotic wildlife, such as anteaters, jaguars, sloths and howler monkeys.
