Copper Canyon
Copper Canyon (Barranca del Cobre) is a region in Northwest Mexico providing some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Mexico. The Copper Canyon area is a series of 20 canyons, formed over the years by six rivers. The Copper Canyon area is sometimes compared to Arizona's Grand Canyon, although the Copper Canyon region is at least seven times the size, and has different topography than the Grand Canyon. Mexico established the Parque Nacional Barranca del Cobre (Copper Canyon National Park) to showcase this remote area. The canyon is the traditional home of the indigenous Raramuri (Tarahumara) people and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The majestic Copper Canyon nature park in the state of Chihuahua, spans more than 600 km (372 mi) in length and 250 km (155 mi) in width. The Copper Canyon system can be explored by the Chihuahua al Pacífico railroad, known by the nickname "Chepe." It is both an important transportation system for locals and a draw for tourists. The Copper Canyon railway is a stunning piece of engineering achievement. Opened after decades of construction in 1961. Described as the most dramatic train ride in the Western Hemisphere, this 400 mile train ride traverses 37 bridges and 86 tunnels en route between Chihuahua City, Chihuahua and Los Mochis…More information about Copper Canyon History
