Even the base of Angel Falls is several hundred feet tall. Angel Falls has over a 2000 foot drop from the top of Ayuan Tepui to the base. Tepuis are ancient geological formations that have withstood erosion over the eons and rise out of the jungle like flat-topped mountains. Each one is so isolated from the surrounding area that it may well have indigenous plant and animal species on the topmost flat areas that are found nowhere else.
