Canaima National Park

Canaima National Park, most famous for having the Worlds highest waterfall, is situated in the Bolivar state, just an hour flight south of Puerto Ordaz. The planes land right by a lagoon where the Rio Carrao split into five large waterfalls perfect for a day of exploring.

First off was Salto Acaima, in the picture above, where there was about a meter and a half of space under the waterfall so that we could barely sneak under it, before we climbed up on the side to Salto Gorandrin which gave us a beautiful view over the lake and bungalows surrounding it. From there we could walk over to Salto Solondrina where we could jump from 5-6 meters into the lake.

The highlight of our waterfall exploring was Salto Hacha though. A waterfall with red and yellow water flowing over a huge area where we could stand and feel the power of the thousands of liters of water flowing through every minute.

Including the Wakü Lodge and the Ara Meru Lodge, but we were staying at a less known and cheaper place that I cannot remember the name of, but it is close to the bar and is run by Peter and his lovely family.
