Carrao River is a river of Venezuela. It is part of the Orinoco River basin. It is well known for one of
its major tributaries, the Churún River, which feeds Angel Falls, the world's highest waterfall. Another
major tributary is the Ahonda River. The Carrao River flows primarily through Canaima National
Park. As it starts to flow north, the Carrao River widens and meets the small town of Canaima, a
vacationing destination. It flows north again, but it eventually narrows. The official height of the falls
was determined by a survey carried out by an expedition organized and financed by American
journalist Ruth Robertson on 13 May 1949.
[12][15]
Robertson's expedition, which began on 23 April
1949, was also the first to reach the foot of the falls.
[16]
The first known attempt to climb the face of
the cliff was made in 1968 during the wet season. As it continues its course west, it drains into
the Caroní River, a major tributary of the Orinoco River in Venezuela.
