World / South America / Venezuela / Dragon and Cortina falls, Venezuela

Dragon and Cortina falls, Venezuela

In May of 2011 Dima Moiseenko left for Venezuela to shoot the highest waterfall in the world — the Angel Falls. The shooting took two days and was very complicated both in its technical aspect and because of the weather. Dima shot the Angel Falls itself, a few neighboring waterfalls in tepuys and spheres over the gold mines on his way back. Now we represent the first part of the shooting — a virtual tour in Venezuela over the Angel Falls' surroundings, the Dragon and Cortina Falls as well as over the gold mines.

And now the author tells:


Several years long we have been shooting the aerial panoramas of the world's most famous and extraordinary waterfalls: the Iguazú in Brazil and Argentina, the Victoria in Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Black waterfall in Iceland...

And, of course, when I had got an opportunity to buy the tickets to Venezuela, to Margarita Island (the Mecca for windsurfers and kiters), at low fare, Salto Angel (the Angel Falls) became the place where easy to get to. And the fact that it's the Highest in the World is evident!

The total height of the waterfall is 979 meters and the altitude of the endless water fall is 807 meters. The fall altitude is so high that before reaching the ground water sprays with the tiny drops and changes into a fog.

It's worth to mention that Venezuela is a unique country. In addition to Hugo Chávez and oil prices (an off-road vehicle's tank full of gasoline will cost approx. USD 3.30) there are tepuys.

Tepuys are a kind of the strange view mountains with the flat tops and famous all over the world as "table top mountains" (perhaps, because they are flat like a table). Just imagine: in deep jungle there are 1 kilometer high rocks with the vertical walls and flat tops. That is why water accumulates there after every single rain and then falls down changing into numerous waterfalls. The Angel Falls is just one of them but with the highest altitude of water fall which is almost 1 kilometer. From the same Auyantepui Mountain the more full-flowing rivers fall down but the altitude of their vertical fall is maximum 200-300 meters.

Dragon Falls, Venezuela

At the same time there is a problem: in a hot, dry season the Angel Falls changes into a thin water stream and in a rainy season vice versa — into a real waterfall. But the weather is so changeable there that watching after the Angel for a month it might be hard to view and enjoy all its beauty...

This season is dry but I was told that it had recently rained and I had a chance to see the real waterfall. I couldn't afford to waste time!

Right near the waterfall (in the Canaima National Park) there are no charter helicopters but only small light jets.  For that reason since the first day of my staying on Margarita Island I had been trying to find any. The Angel Falls is located in the wild nature of Venezuela and it is reachable only by air or river. On the third day of my staying I found the telephone number of a company which deals with the gold mines and has a Bell-206 helicopter in its fleet. It is situated 100 miles from the waterfall. And for dear Russian friends it's absolutely possible to supply the machine for visiting the waterfall in the morning.

Well, just to get there from Margarita Island I had to change two airplanes, cross the Orinoco River and then 8 hours long drive...

On the first day we flew up at 7 a.m. and at 8:15 were standing at the Angel's foot. The helicopter landed near a camp which is a start point for the walking tours to the waterfall. Falling 1 kilometer down, water changes into spray and on the ground there is a cloud of water fog and the river appears from nowhere which then flows down...

We take off the helicopter doors there. The machine was ready to start up but the whole sky over the Auyantepui Mountain, from which the Angel flows, was covered with clouds although the waterfall itself was freely viewed.

I decided to fly up and wait there. It was hard to find a pad to land among plenty of rocks covering the table mountain top. Aside the waterfall from time to time during the hour the sky became partly blue but then again was covered with clouds.

Unexpectedly, in five minutes a cloud appeared from below and we were standing in a thick fog that moment. Several hours long the fog was so thick that a pilot refused not only to shoot but he even didn't think of flying up. We got stuck on the mountain top...

Finally, by the noon the sky seemed us blue in the valley and we flew up. We found a gap and flew down to the camp. After we had landed and had been ready to put the doors back, the waterfall, as if it was jeering at us, can be viewed again!

Though the clouds over the Auyantepui Mountain had still been existing, I decided to shoot spheres at current light. As a result, the first day photos, had been shot from every planned point, were successful although without sunlight but with parts of clouds and fog.  

In the evening I stitched the panoramas' previews but I still had no feeling of the job done.

On the second day I decided to visit the Angel again. That day we started our flight from the miners' village named "88 km". It is located 1 flight hour from the waterfall.

The sky was gloomy but nobody knew what the weather was like 90 miles far from there, near the waterfall. At 8 a.m., when we arrived near the camp, the waterfall wasn't seen at all. Even the Auyantepui's wall was completely covered with the clouds which were appearing from nowhere

At 10 a.m. we were able to see a half of the waterfall, at 11 the top appeared. I thought it would be a good idea to shoot the waterfall with a cloud in the middle of it and ordered to fly up.

I left the second camera down, on the tripod with a teleobjective, in order to shoot the helicopter against a background of the Angel.

The camera was programmed to shoot the waterfall automatically with 5 seconds intervals. 

Dragon Falls, Venezuela

The sky was grey above us. While we were flying up and coming closer to the waterfall, the top was disappeared in the fog again... But, anyway, I made the sphere... Going the second circle I felt something wrong with the camera. Indeed, the shutter was failed. We had to fly down, change the camera and ... wait again.

Suddenly, the sky began to clarify and by 12:30 almost the whole sky became blue except of the Angel and the Auyantepui Mountain's tops as if it was Murthy's Law. Then I decided to shoot at least the neighboring waterfalls. We flew around very beautiful waterfall with a scary name Dragon which is 300 meters high and then directed to the Salto Cortina with two cascades of 200 meters high each one. And from that place I saw that the cloud was leaving the Angel's top. We fast returned.  In a couple of minutes the haze disappeared and I began to shoot the Angel form its top. 

At 1 p.m. only the very top was lighted when the bottom was in shadow. It lasted 15 minutes. I was able to fly down 800 meters from the very top, along the stream, till the foot and shot about a dozen of spheres until the fog appeared again.  Being on the ground, in the camp, while the pilot was putting the helicopter door on, I turned and saw a next cloud completely covered the waterfall... That was the way the nature favored us with a quarter of an hour for two days!

On our way back we flew over the gold mines. After some arrangements with the pilot he, finally, agreed for a small fee to fly around the mines with the helicopter door off although let me know beforehand that we could be at gun sight if somebody saw a cameraman. 

Either the gold miners were tired due to the hot weather (40 grades above zero) in wet jungles or the rain accompanied with a rainbow forced them go, anyway, nobody paid us attention and we safely returned to the base.  

That was the end of our complicated shooting of the Angel Falls — the highest waterfall in the world.

My father would fly us over to Canaima and fly around "Angel Falls" I used to see Jimmy Angel's plane there. I understand they have removed it. My father also "sponsored" the first man to reach Jimmy's plane by dropping food supplies to him as he couldn't carry all he needed in his climb up. We had a copy of the letter Jimmy left in the plane for the first person to reach it. I had an amazing childhood seeing all this beauty at a young age. It is true, that to find it not covered by clouds was hard. Thanks for bringing back to me and others. It's so nice it is still wild and not commercialized!

Me di el lujo de bañarme en sus aguas, al final de su caída, la cual parece una regadera. Por donde baja el maravilloso salto se llama "LA GARGANTA DEL DIABLO" es muy impresionante, de igual forma permanecí quince días rescatando la Avioneta de Jimmy Crawford Ángel, volábamos en un helicóptero UH y al llegar al tope, descendíamos hasta el pie del salto, es algo mas que impresionante. Invito a todos los exploradores, científicos etc. que visiten a nuestro golpeado país. Pero no por eso deja de tener sus bellezas. Juan Enrique Laurentin Rojas. Valencia, Venezuela.

Some years ago we took a flight in a small plane from Isla Margarita to Kavak, a small village near Angel Falls. Arriving, we flew over the tepui but the Falls were fogged-in. Landing,w e trekked up the river to a grotto, then back for lunch of mystery-meat (monkey?). We flew over the now-clear Falls, the cowboy pilot giving us a close-up view of the Falls. There are several other falls from neighboring tepuis, one that never touched the ground but blew sidways onto the smooth rock face, sheeting down. It was an unforgetable trip!

Fred Whitaker, USA

Beautiful.

Silvester Mifsud, Malta

Prachtig! Wij hebben zelf mogen beleven de waterval te zien. Met bootjes door de jungle, slapen in hangmatten, en dan wandelen tot aan de voet van de waterval. geweldig met een bulderend geweld stort ze naar beneden, word er nog weemoedig van. Zou dit nog wel eens over willen doen.

Stunning, Awesome, Beautiful! My first remembrance of Angel Falls was seeing it in the 1960 movie, "The Lost World," which had aeriel photography looking down at the falls and surrounding area. It's primitive beauty mesmerized me then and still does every time I see it now, more than 50 years later.

Thank you so much for making this magnificent part of God's creation available to the general public to see on such a grand scale.

God bless you!

Christopher Fry, USA

Back in the late forties while we were living in Costa Rica, some friends had Jimmie Angel visiting them. We were invited to lunch and met him. I was too young to appreciate this adventurer and what he had discovered. I will always treasure that memory and today I got to visit his falls, thanks to you!

How marvelous to see the Angel & Dragon Falls so close! I was visiting a friend in Caracas Aug. 1969 & we took a weekend trip there flying a DC 3 not very close but able to see the Falls. We landed on a dirt strip & had a delightful time at the open air & basic camp run by Russians (great food). Jungle Rudy took us out on the Rio Cario, such pure & clean water,tea brown. He would take groups overland to the Angel Falls base. I wonder what has happened to him. He was fasinating & personable.

Thank you Dimitry. Brought back treasured memories of a lovely week-end my wife and I spent at the Camp Canaima in Feb. 1963. We were in a commercial DC-3 flown by Avensa; the pilot flew mid-level across Angel Falls to give everyone on both sides of the plane a good view...also flew over the top of Auyantepui, and saw Jimmy Angels plane where he landed and had to leave it. Good accomodations at the camp. Thanks again.

I visited Angel Falls in 2010; 7 hours by dug out Canoe along the river from Canaima. Climbed up to the base of the falls through the humid jungle. Luckily weather was great from time to time. In Canaima there are 3 wide falls where one could walk behind two of them with an enormous curtain of water in front of you. Canaima Lagoon too is beautiful with unusual reddish coloured water.
Thanks for the lovely presentation. Otlichno!

Venezuela, ¿qué es Venezuela? Sin dudas, una tierra mágica ancestral y el ombligo del mundo: La Estrella del Sur. Tantos ecosistemas naturales de los que tenemos y que muchas veces ni los mismos venezolanos conocemos, por políticas anteriores que nos habían cerrado los ojos a nuestras propias realidades. Hasta Hollywood ha sacado mucho provecho de nuestros entornos naturales, sin embargo, casi nunca dicen que han filmado sus pelis en este hermoso pais lleno de riquezas. La tecnología con la que se han creado estas panorámicas 3d interactivas, es necesario colocarlas en manos de las comunidades, no sólo para resaltar nuestras riquezas naturales, sino para registrar y divulgar lugares históricos trascendentales en nuestra hermosa patria. Como me gustaría ver así a mi pueblo histórico, San Mateo Edo. Aragua, la verdadera cuna de El Libertador Simón Bolívar. ¿Será que algún este pueblo, San Mateo Edo. Aragua, será reconocido como el verdadero lugar de nacimiento de nuestro Libertador?. Es necesaria la concientización de la preservación de los entornos naturales, no hay un mañana en un planeta tan contaminado... ¿Thanks to we friends of Venezuela for this very goog job!

Beatriz Pérez Noguera, Venezuela

Me lleno de emoción por tan maravillosa creación de la naturaleza que injustificadamente aún no ha sido catalogada entre las siete maravillas del mundo.Siento verguenza, pero reconozco públicamente como venezolana, que no conozco aún en persona ese enigmático lugar.De igual manera, desapruebo como ciudadana y con mucha tristeza, el daño irreversible que la cultura del oro ha ocasionado a esa parte del Amazonas venezolano y que se extiende junto a todo tipo de explotaciones suicidas a través del territorio amazónico de este continente Suramericano, pulmón del planeta!!! Que Dios bendiga y llene de luz, a quienes realizaron de manera tan mágica este valioso trabajo audiovisual.

Beatriz Pérez Noguera, Venezuela


Dear Beatriz, thank you very much for your detailed opinion! It gives us pleasure to have such visitors like you. We are grateful for all the wishes you made and we wish you all the best too.

Before I had read the description or headers for all of the videos, I wondered aloud at how much gold might be at the base of the waterfall. Then I saw the goldfields. It was enough to make me sick.
All for shiny little rocks.

Féérie d'un panorama millénaire jusqu'alors réservé à quelques très rares privilégiés ! Merci Dimitri ! J'ai pu monter au Roraïma mais je rêve du Churum Meru (nom indigène du Salto Angel) ! A signaler qu'en Guadeloupe sur la Basse-Terre (qui est la plus haute !) avec le volcan la Soufrière il y a des chutes d'eau partout, moins hautes mais très belles à immortaliser d'en haut...et n'es-tu pas le magicien de la photo??? Encore Merci! PS: tambien soy venezolana and very proud of!

Cécile Stredel, France

Tus palabras son muy amenas. Gracias y suerte!

Varvara, AirPano

Por una vez sobre la tierra,
Acerquémonos a los labertintos del agua,
Entre las alfombras de los tepuyes,
Y oir el sonido del silencio.

Sería un atardecer fragante,
Sin prisa,sin ansiedad,
en una inquietud instántanea.

Grata la voz del agua,
Grata la persisencia del aire,
Grata la soledad que no conocemos,
Grata la tarde,
Grata la mañana,
Grata la noche,
en ese exquisito panorama milenario

Luis Florez, Venezuela

Great photography of Angel Falls. Two days to shoot but worth it, right? The Philippines has around 200 waterfalls, although the US has more. Perhaps, someday, you can take photos of the waterfalls in that Far Eastern country.

hill roberts, Spain


A new tour, dedicated to Icelandic waterfalls, is coming soon. The number of waterfalls in Iceland is even more than both in the USA and Philippins. In Iceland there is a proverb: "oh, it is another one fucking waterfall!"

Varvara, AirPano

BRINZA ADRIANA, Italy

All comments above say it: EXCELENT PHOTOGRAFIC WORK. You can see the ecological disaster that the gold miners did and are doing to this nature reservoir and worldwide oxigen source. Everybody must demand it!

Extraordinario trabajo!!!! Sobrevolé varias veces el Salto Angel y las Minas de San Salvador de Paul pero nunca pude apreciar esta maravilla con tanto detalle. Muy logrado. Felicitaciones!!!!

Beautiful, and the music background is brilliant.
Where can I get a copy of this music composition or on what CD is it available?

Many thanks, really delightful.

Dios ha hecho cosas hermosas como nuestro Salto Angel para que le brindemos al mundo tanta belleza que se en vez de fotos quieran llevarse su imágen en las pupilas. Clara Delgado

CLARA DELGADO

Una vez más, un lugar maravilloso de la Naturaleza puesto al alcance de todos gracias a los medios tecnológicos actuales. Sencillamente: ¡espectacular! Como única pega: la música de fondo. Para este tipo de imágenes, quizás lo mejor es el propio ruido natural y el sonido del agua al caer.

Javier Millán
