Departure from Canaima airstrip, and flight over the spectacular landscape of Canaima National Park. After approx. 20 min. we enter the impressive Devil's Canyon, and soon we see the highest waterfall on earth: Angel Falls. It was 1935, when a stranger offered Jimmy Angel $5000 to fly him to an uncharted mountaintop in southern Venezuela, and the bush pilot, down on his luck, jumped at the chance. He flew his mysterious passenger to this mountaintop, and set up camp by a stream. In three days, they found 75 pounds of gold. Returning to Caracas, Mr. Angel lost contact with his passenger. Trying to return, but without his treasure guide, he fruitlessly scoured the vast wilderness for the golden stream. One day he crash landed on top of a 2400 meter high mountain. Two weeks later the exhausted adventurer emerged on foot, bearing with him knowledge of a secret the local Pemón Indians had guarded for centuries: Churún Merú, the world´s highest waterfall.
