De Ángelwetterfal (Spaansk: Salto Ángel, soms oantsjutten mei de ynlânske namme Kerepakupai merú) is de heechste frijfallende wetterfal fan de wrâld mei in hichte fan 979 meter. De wetterfal is neamd nei de "ûntdekker", Jimmie Angel.

Hy leit oan in sydrivier sûnder namme fan de Caroní yn it Nasjonaal park Canaima yn Fenezuëla. Dêr binne heechlizzende rotsplato's (tepui's), mei in bysûndere floara en fauna. De protte rein dy't yn de omkriten falt, siket syn paad nei de rânen fan de plato's troch ûnderierdske grotten.

Hoewol't earder yn de 20e iuw al sjoen troch ferkenner Ernesto de Santa Cruz waard it pas bekend yn de westerse wrâld nei de offisjele ûntdekking troch de Amerikaanse fleander Angel dy't mei syn fleantúch op'e siik wie nei goud. Angel wie yn 1899 berne yn Springfield, Missoury.

De hichte fan de wetterfal waard yn 1949 fêststeld troch in ekspedysje fan de National Geographic Society. Ruth Robinson skreau dêroer it artikel Jungle Journey to the World's Highest Waterfall

Yn it boek Angels Four beskriuwt David Mott de earste súksesfolle beklimming fan Auyan-tepui ('Duvelsberch') nei de top fan de wetterfal. De wetterfal is Fenezuela's meast ferneamde toeristyske attraksje.

Best way to get here is to fly into Canaima Airport from Caracas. The water drops over 2,600 feet into the park from Auyantepui Mountain, and it's the world highest!

Recomendado venir en septiembre, octubre si quieres ver la cascada con su mayor esplendor.

Хотел принять отменный душ под водопадом высотой в километр, так нет же - за последние 200 метров падения вода распыляется так, что с таким же успехом принять душ можно было в подмосковном тумане.
