This action packed loop starts just before Las Cuevas. It's just what you need to get your blood pumping and short enough, so you can carry on with the rest of your day…
Falling Angels is a short yet intense River Expedition; enough to give anyone a thrill! This tour conveniently starts a short drive up the North coast of Trinidad, just before Las Cuevas. The topography you will experience along the tour route, is nothing short of magnificent.
The expedition starts with a 3km/1.9mi approach to the breathtaking Angel Falls. Along the way, there is a chance to be entertained by the playful White Bearded Manakins. This segment challenges you with quite a steep gradient. At the end of this incline pump, you will have a rest stop at the falls, before you embark on your action packed descent!
As this segment continues, you will experience scrambling and rock hopping along the river, 3 rappels (some in excess of 25m/80ft) and who knows... perhaps even have an encounter with Crab Eating Raccoons!
If you do not have previous experience using rappelling/rock climbing gear and not familiar with the techniques used for this activity, you will be required to participate in the CoolBlue Adventures Rock Climbing/Rappelling Experience (see our listings), prior to embarking on this expedition.
