The canyons are landforms caused by a river that carves out a deep cleft nearly vertical walls. They are really incredible landscapes as we can see on Gecko’s Adventures blog, where you can admire the best sunsets in the world or enjoy high waterfalls.
1. Copper Canyon, Mexico
It is one of the places you must visit in the country, which has much more than beaches, sun and ancient ruins. The best time to enjoy it is during the evening, because it becomes even more magical.
2. Zambezi Gorge, Zimbabwe
It is certainly the most beautiful canyon in Africa. It is the home to the famous Victoria Falls. If you visit southern Africa, you cannot miss this wonderful place.
It is known worldwide for its depth, its warm tones and its history, since it is one of the treasures of the country. If you have the chance, make a one or two days trip to fully understand this miracle of nature.
4. Wulingyuan Canyon, China
It seems almost a landscape of another planet, because of its sandstone pillars and its semi-permanent haze. It was China’s first national park and home to the world’s tallest external elevator.
It is one of the deepest canyons in the world and here you can see the majestic condor. If you arrive early in the morning, you will be rewarded with a spectacular show by these large birds.
The most striking aspect of this gorge is the contrast of colors between blue and red walls, punctuated by a large number of waterfalls and the incredible eden-like surroundings you’ll encounter at the end.
