Useless information #21- The world’s highest waterfall

…is the awesome Angel Falls, in Venezuela…

Are you sure?

Angel Falls (almost 1000 meters high) is the highest cataract in the Earth’s surface.


The Denmark Strait cataract is an underwater waterfall of...

3500 meters!

Before you ask...
The water falls due to the differences in temperatures between the water masses in each side of the strait.

“Undersea cataracts that descend farther than any waterfall and carry more water than any river play a crucial role in maintaining the chemistry and climate of the deep ocean.” - John A. Whitehead
