Angel Falls Tour – Rappel & Trek
VEN-20 / 14-day trip / Grade: PD
The Auyantepui, located in Southern Venezuela on the Guayanas’ shield, in a geographical area known as: La Gran Sabana. It is one of the many table-like flat-topped mountains known as Tepuis and the largest of all of them with a 700 sq. km. surface. Its name translated from the Arekuna language means ”The Devil’s House”.
This massive mountain houses the world’s highest waterfall: Angel’s fall with 979 meters, as well as some of Venezuela’s deepest caves like Ahonda. Just a walk on its summit is a journey back into a prehistoric time in a remote world of caves, gorges, colorful rivers, sandstones walls twisted into the most amazing shapes and, on top of all that, an incredible endemic fauna and flora from a distant past.
In this program the trek will not only take the traveller to this fantastic world, but it will also lead to a once in a lifetime adventure: rappelling down for 2 days beside the highest waterfall in the planet and then sailing down Churun and Carrrao Rivers enjoying the most impressive view of this giant Tepui!
