Description of Venezuela

Venezuela is the jewel of South America. Although tourism is on the rise, in many places remain undiscovered treasures of the world. Venezuela is the fifth largest country in South America. It is washed by the Caribbean Sea in the north; the length of coastline is about 3000 km. The country has a diverse landscape, ranging from the snowy peaks of the Andes to the plains, jungles and the Amazon rainforests.

Venezuela's most famous attraction is the world famous Angel Falls, the height of which is about 15 times greater than of Niagara Falls. It is located in the remote rainforests of the National Park Canaima. Water falls into the abyss from a height of 1 km, and is even more awesome, when the water level is high. The best time to travel to Venezuela is during the rainy season from June to December.

Also in that national park is the Gran Sabana, the vast hilly plateau covered with tropical forests and meadows. More than a hundred flat tops are scattered across the landscape. The Mount Roraima, its largest peak, rises to 2810 meters.

Many virgin beaches of the world are located in Venezuela; one of them is in the National Park. Clean blue water and beautiful coral reefs make it a great place to relax and dive.

In Venezuela, there are also the Andes Mountains. Merida is one of the most famous cities of the ridge. The city is situated among the high peaks. There are many opportunities for horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking and rafting.

The third largest river of South America is located in Venezuela - is the Orinoco River and its basin is a region of swamps, rivers and forests. The Orinoco River flows through the complex labyrinth of waterways, before emptying into the ocean. The indigenous peoples of Venezuela, called Warao, are still living on the shores of the rivers in houses on stilts.
