The lost world of Venezuela is a destination with snow-capped peaks of the Andes, abundant wildlife in the Llanos, beautiful coastline, lush jungle, indigenous tribes, interesting colonial history and friendly South American hospitality. Venezuela's greatest natural attraction is the world's highest waterfall, magnificent Angel Falls. Not only is Venezuela one of South America's undiscovered travel gems, but a must see destination for adventure travelers.

From the capital of Caracas, we fly to Merida, which boasts typical Andean culture and scenery, and is situated high in the mountains. The snow-covered peaks of the Andes create the perfect backdrop to the wildlife rich plains of the Llanos.

We will encounter indigineous tribes, including the Pemon Indians of Canaima and also the Warao or "Canoe People" of the Orinoco Delta. The Delta is an intricate labyrinth of waterways weaving through the jungle and supports extremely rich and varied wildlife including jaguar, puma, ocelot, red howler and capuchin monkeys, capybara, giant otters, manatee and pink dolphins and anacondas as well as extensive birdlife.

We cap off our trip with a visit to the world's highest waterfall, Angel Falls, situated in the vast, pristine jungles of Canaima National Park, which feature a unique geological feature known as "Tepuis" or table-top Mountains. We see many of the parks spectacular waterfalls and rivers which beautifully carve and shape the stunning landscape of Canaima. We will enjoy these beautiful surroundings during our scenic flight and a 3 hour boat journey through Canaima's jungle enroute to Angel Falls. We overnight on the river which offers the opportunity to see the breathtaking view of sunset and sunrise on Angel Falls.

Unlike many tour operators, ElderTreks provides plenty of opportunity to see Angel Falls by scenic flight, on foot and by locally-made canoes. At almost 1 kilometer high, the sheer size and height of the falls does not translate into mere words or through photos and must truly be seen up close to be fully appreciated.

From the world's highest waterfall, to the peaks of the Andes Mountains, the lush jungles, indigenous tribes and abundant wildlife make this journey nothing short of an absolutely epic adventure.
