世界最高的瀑布─天使瀑布(Angel Falls)
又名安赫爾瀑布或者丘倫梅魯瀑布

瀑布在委內瑞拉與圭亞那的高原密林深處。這個地區的熱帶雨林非常茂密,人不可能步行抵達瀑布的底部。雨季時,河流因多雨而變深,人們可以乘船進入。在一年的其他時間裡,只能從空中觀賞瀑布。

天使瀑布位於卡羅尼河的源流丘倫河(Churun)上,河水從蓋亞那高原奧揚特普伊山(Auyan Tepui)的陡壁直瀉下來,瀑布可分為兩段,一段大約先落下807米,落在一個巖架上,再從巖架上落下約172米,下面則是一個寬152米的大水池,這樣的落差達979米,大約是尼亞加拉瀑布高度的16倍,可謂是世界上「落差最大」的瀑布。

而1937年,美國探險家詹姆斯•安赫爾(James Crawford Angel)在空中對瀑布進行考察時,但不幸墬機意外身亡,當地政府為了紀念他,因此把該瀑布命名為「安赫爾瀑布」,目前這裡無陸路可通,只有搭乘飛機飛越上空才能一睹它神秘的風貌。
