Angel Falls Venezuela World's Highest Waterfall
Angel Falls (Spanish: Salto Ángel; Pemon language: Kerepakupai Merú meaning "waterfall of the deepest place", or Parakupá Vená, meaning "the fall from the highest point") is a waterfall in Venezuela. It is the world's tallest uninterrupted waterfall, with a height of 979 metres (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyán-tepui mountain in the Canaima National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Canaima), a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolívar State.
The height figure, 979 m (3,212 ft), mostly consists of the main plunge but also includes about 400 metres (1,300 ft) of sloped cascade and rapids below the drop and a 30-metre (98 ft) high plunge downstream of the talus rapids.
The falls are along a fork of the Río Kerepacupai Merú which flows into the Churún River, a tributary of the Carrao River, itself a tributary of the Orinoco River.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
