15 Beautiful Reasons to Love Venezuela & Its People-MainPhotoVENEZUELA
Venezuela is home to Angel Falls, the tallest waterfall in the world. The waterfall is named after U.S. Aviator, Jimmie Angel, who was the first to fly a plane over it. Angel attempted to land his plane on top of the mountain near the falls, but it was damaged upon landing. Angel, his wife, and two other companions had to make their way back to civilization on foot (it took 11 days!), and as a result of their adventure, the falls were named after Angel. However, there has been a bit of controversy over the name; some believe the country’s most famous landmark should have an indigenous name.
