The Tallest Waterfall in the World

tallest waterfall in the world

 It is the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall with a height of 979 m (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft) and it’s called Angel Falls (Salto Ángel or Kerepakupai Vená) in Canaima National Park, Venezuela

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the height figure 979 m (3,212 ft) mostly consists of the main plunge but also includes about 400 m (0.25 mi) of sloped cascades and rapids below the drop and a 30-metre (98 ft) high plunge downstream. [Source]

Angel Falls is so high that some of the water evaporates before it even reaches the pool below. Unlike most falls, this one isn’t fed by snowmelt, a lake or a river, but by rainfall from the tropical clouds.
