Tuxtla Gutierrez Chiapas
The Gully Canyon is a deep narrow canyon, located 5 kilometers from Tuxtla Gutierrez, capital of Chiapas, Mexico. The cliffs of this canyon are more than 1000 meters high. The river Grijalva, which runs through it, has a depth of over 250 meters. The fault line developed about twelve million years ago. In the Sierra Norte de Chiapas it is among the most spectacular, with walls that rise over 1300 feet. The river is flowing through the states of Chiapas and Tabasco and flows into the Gulf of Mexico. In its southern entrance, the canyon begins in Chiapa de Corzo, and flows into the artificial reservoir of the hydroelectric dam Manuel Moreno Torres, best known as "Chicoasén".
