Traveled Sept, 2009
We had the rest of the afternoon to enjoy this area. There was a very lovely lagoon with a white sand beach and the reddest water I have ever seen – red from the minerals in the earth. Sapo falls fell into this lagoon, along with several other falls.
We swam in the lagoon and in late afternoon, we had a hiking tour to see some of the other falls, including a walk behind one of them.
In the morning, we were shuttled to the river above the falls
and we got in a motorized canoe that took over 4 hours to the base of Angel Falls. We had several stops along the way to swim in a small waterfall and have lunch.
At Angel Falls, we hiked up the muddy hill to the base of the falls. Angel Falls actually has two falls – the long drop of the upper falls along with a shorter, wider lower falls. We were able to swim at the base.
At night time, it was completely dark as we slept in our hammocks.
The next morning I got up to view the falls at sunrise.
This was followed by breakfast, boat ride down river, and flight back to Ciudad Bolivar.
