One of Mexico’s most spectacular tourist attractions is the Copper Canyon in the northern region of the state of Chihuahua. The Copper Canyon is not only one canyon but a series of 20 canyons which belong to the Sierra Madre Mountains. This amazing natural site is four times larger than the Great Canyon in Arizona and a must for those doing tourism in Mexico.

The Copper Canyon is ideal for practicing extreme sports, such as hiking, rappelling, trekking and mountain biking. There is also a wide variety of vegetation and wild animals for those who like to explore the natural environment.
From the top of the Copper Canyon the landscape is awesome. The Sierra Madre occupies more than 60,000 kilometers square of land, the highest mountains reach up to 3,000 meters, and many rivers which are born in the high woods have sculpted their path on the volcano rocks.
The Sierra Madre is home of the Tarahumara and Raramuri indigenous communities; you can stop by these communities and buy their handmade crafts. There is a historical railroad that goes from Chihuahua to the Pacific Coast passing through 86 tunnels and crossing 39 bridges, going through mountains and narrow passes. Taking this train is an ideal opportunity to admire wonderful views of waterfalls and rivers.
The Copper Canyon is a beautiful place that invites you to take a deep breath and to observe with admiration on your trip to Mexico.
