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. This is Canaima National Park. Many of the mountains have precipitous rock walls that rise thousands of meters where they end in an almost perfectly flat top. These formations are known by their Indian name: Tepuis. Originally the tops of the tepuis were joined together in a vast continuous plateau that stretched over a large part of northern South America. Over 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 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.
