The Canaima Nationalpark in Venezuela covers an area of about 30'000 square kilometres in south-eastern Venezuela. It is bordered by the Río Carrao, the Lema Mountain Range to the north and by the Pakaraima Range to the Brazilian border to the south. The best-known feature of the park are its characteristic flat-topped mountain formations known as 'tepuis'.

The most famous of it are the Auyantepui, the Chimanta massif, the Kukenántepui and Mount Roraima at the border to Guyana and Brazil.

Within the park you can find the several waterfalls, including the world's highest. The Angel Falls drops 979 m metres from near the summit of Auyantepui.
