The origin of the highest waterfall in the world


The Angel Falls is located in the Venezuela. It is named after Jimmie Angel, a US aviator who was the first to fly over the falls in a plane. The waterfall has a height of 979 m, which is almost a kilometre. It is estimated that each drop of water takes 14 seconds to fall from the top to the bottom. Most interestingly, the origin of the waterfalls is not a river or any other water body like the other common waterfalls, but the rainfall from the clouds over the forests above the plateau from which the water falls.
