Auyantepui, standing 1,500 meters over the jungle floor, is home to Salto Angel (Angel Falls), the highest waterfall on the planet. With a single drop of 807 meters and total height of 979 meters, recent rains presented a truly spectacular cascade. Its cool waters and a large pool at the bottom made for welcome escape from the mid-day heat.
