Full Answer

Angel Falls drops off the edge of the Auyantepui mountain with a plunge of 2,648 feet. The entire height of the falls consists of that main plunge plus the sloped cascades and rapids below the large drop. The Gauja River feeds Angel Falls, and the water flows into the Churun River. Angel Falls gets its name from the mid-20th century American aviator, Jimmie Angel, who flew over the falls many times beginning in 1933.
