Q:
What is the highest waterfall in the world?
A:

The highest waterfall in the world is Angel Falls in the remote rain forests of Venezuela. It’s about 20 times taller than Niagara Falls–the water drops a distance of 3,212 feet! Because it’s surrounded by thick forests, Angel Falls wasn’t discovered until the early 1930s, when the first airplane survey of Venezuela took place. The waterfall was named after American explorer James Angel, who crash-landed his plane near it soon after its discovery.
