Canaima and Angel Falls image

Canaima, right in the middle of the Gran Sabana, is beside a beautiful lagoon formed by the mighty Carrao river. It is also the jumping-off point for trips to the Angel Falls, either in an overflight by small plane or by water on a canoe trip up the Carrao and Churún rivers. The Angel Falls plunge from the summit of the region's largest tepui, Auyán-tepuy (whose surface covers 700 square kilometres).
