Mountains and canyons have their own special aura. Amazingly, they inspire awe more than perhaps any other natural concoction there is on earth (except perhaps a high rise waterfall). Due to this awe, mountains are often the tourist attraction for the tranquil seeking mob of our generation. If anyone is fed up with the ways of the world and it’s devastating intricacies, the mountain is the ultimate go-to destination. Since you, dear traveler, are in Mexico for a vacation, might we suggest a canyon for you? The copper canyon it is, and no, there is no copper here.
Situated in the state of Chihuahua, the copper canyon gets its name from its walls, which appear green in color. At some places, it is deeper than the grand canyon and flourishes in a wide variety of flora and fauna (photographers alert!). Like the Holbox Island, this place too is well secluded from metropolitan stuff and what you get is pure nirvana in the form of raw mother nature at it’s best. The village Creel is the highest point of the canyon and stands at about 8000 feet. Guaranteed, views from there are breathtaking and euphoric. Life is traditional, simple and old school. Worth a visit to the locals.
Do some mountain biking, have some much needed hiking, enjoy a bit driving or climb atop a horse to do some riding. Its almost poetic in this form, and at the canyon, you almost become a poet, bathed in the glory of mother nature. The smell of fresh air and the awesome sense of belongingness to the region. That’s what the Copper canyon promises. And with the promise, you get those valuable insights to life, almost philosophically. Don’t just read our advice. Visit the canyon and find out for yourself.
