THE HIGHEST WATERFALL ON THE EARTH!




Dear Children, do you know which is the highest waterfall in the world? It's Angel Falls!
Angel Falls is the highest waterfall in the world with a height of 979 meters ( 3212 feet ). It flows off the mountain called Auyantepui  in Canaima National Park in Venezuela, a country in the continent South America. It is also one of the UNESCO World heritage sites.
The base of this amazing waterfall flows into the Kerrep river which flows into Churun River. The water falls from so far that the water becomes mist on reaching the bottom. 
                                               
                                

Do you know from where did the Angel Falls get its name? It is named after Jimmy Angels a pilot of an airplane, that crashed at the top of the falls in 1937. Angel Falls is a very famous tourist attraction of Venenzuela.
 Hope you liked the article.

    Won't you like to be a small drop of water and travel those 979 meters as a fine mist covering you while the exhilarate fall lets the breeze caress your water body?
