Venezuela 2000. Angel Falls in Canaima National Park.

Canaima National Park is spread over 3 million ha in south-eastern Venezuela along the border between Guyana and Brazil. 

Roughly 65% of the park is covered by table mountain (tepui) formations. 

The tepuis constitute a unique biogeological entity and are of great geological interest. The sheer cliffs and waterfalls, including the world's highest (1,000 m), form a spectacular landscape.
