What is Angel Fall’s history?
Angel Falls was discovered by Jimmie Angel, an American bush pilot, he was hired by the Venezuelan government to carry out geologic explorations. He was primarily searching for gold in 1935, but instead he found a waterfall that appeared to be higher than any ever seen before. He was flying over a tributary of the River Caroni in the Guyana highlands. In 1949, under the leadership of journalist Ruth Robertson, the National Geographic Society mounted an expedition to accurately measure Jimmie Angel's falls. Reluctant to approach "Devil Mountain," the Pemon porters painted their faces red to guard themselves against evil spirits. Ruth Robertson discovered that the falls' first main drop of 2,648 feet made it the single most uninterrupted drop in the world. Although at 3,212 feet the falls are short of Jimmie Angel's estimated one mile, they are 16 times the height of Niagara Falls, and the world's highest falls. (“Jimmie”)
