Beautiful Canyons #4
Barranca del Cobre

The Barranca del Cobre (translated as Copper Gorge) is a mountain formation of the Sierra Madre Occidental located in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, which was formed by formerly strong river flow and is partly located on an area settled by Tarahumara Indians. Covering about 25,000 square kilometers, up to 1,800 meters deep and 50 kilometers long, the canyon system is one of the largest in North America and four times the size of the Grand Canyon. The name Copper Canyon is derived from the copper-colored canyon rock, piedra cobriza, and also refers to a canyon contained within the system.
Through the entire Barranca del Cobre, the elaborately built “Chepe” railroad, which runs from Los Mochis to Chihuahua, winds its way up the mountains to places from which you can see sweeping views of the canyon area. You will now follow this railroad line from the beginning to the end and experience an adventurous flight and breathtakingly beautiful landscapes.
Have fun flying and exploring, Koschi.
