The highest waterfalls of the world and abseiling. How to understand this phenomenon? Incredible scenery, adrenaline experience or unreachable wonder of the world? Yet, there is a group of friends and fanatics who master perfectly this extreme category. Their common challenge is to discover, explore and fuse with wild vertical elements. Even the best prepared journeys into unknown don´t guarantee the intended goal. The only certainty is the power of their friendship and absolute trust into each other. Is it enough to traverse the highest waterfalls of the world?

Geographical records of the Earth are well known: the highest mountain is Mount Everest, the longest river is Nil, the highest waterfall is Angel Falls. However, the Czech geodesists stated in 2019 that Tugela Falls in the South Africa is higher. Nobody made a traverse or abseil this waterfall until now. Team of friends have decided to abseil and measure it. The first abseil was successful, but the difficult task was still ahead - to abseil the Angel Falls in Venezuela and to compare them.
