Giving honor to its name and shoulder to shoulder with one of the most acclaimed Venezuelan rock climbers, VenezuelAdventure launches the Angel Falls ultimate experience. 12 days of intense adventure and contact with one of the few yet unspoiled places on earth.
For most people, coming to Venezuela for holidays and not being able to see Angel Falls is like not having holidays at all!
We went several steps further; or shall we say several meters further down? What about not only visiting the tallest waterfall in the world but, also, bivouacking next to it at 500 masl?
You don’t need to know anything about rock climbing, abseiling, or being extra brave. But you do need to be in shape to do this tour.
