The “Happiness Pool” was so named by our Angel Falls tour guide. Since I can’t figure out if it has a more formal name, I stuck with his suggestion. In any case, we visited this waterfall on our way back from Angel Falls. It was not long after relaunching the boat into the Carrao River just upstream from the Mayupa Rapids.

This waterfall gave us an opportunity to get wet under a waterfall. A couple of fellow mates from our tour group actually went partway up the waterfall before walking through the curtain of water and then disappeared behind it. It was a pretty cool photo opportunity, but there was not a whole lot else to this roughly 5-10m waterfall. Julie and I decided to pass on going under the falls.

We saw this waterfall automatically as part of our Angel Falls tour. I’m not sure if other tours would stop by this one or if it was specific to our tour or if it was up to whim of our tour guide.

Fixated on the falls with some rocking due to the movie being shot from the boat
