Located in the south west of Mexico’s largest state of Chihuahua, the Barranca del Cobre (Copper Canyon) system is a rugged wilderness area with a maze of 200 interlocking gorges that combine into five massive interconnected canyons. It is at least seven times the size and 1,462 feet deeper than Arizona’s Grand Canyon and on this marvellous six day tour you will get great views of this natural wonder. This almost inaccessible canyon system was not even fully documented until 1986. The area is the home of the Tarahumara Indians, with whom you will certainly meet, and they still live much the way that they have for thousands of years.
