The Sump Canyon is about 5kms from Tuxtla Gutierrez, capital of the province of Chiapas, Mexico. To get there you can go by car or by boat on the river. It is within the ecological park of Sump Canyon. The barrel has a height of over 1000m by 14kms long and it is the bed of the river Grijalva. This river rises on the border with Guatemala and goes through the states of Chiapas and Tabasco and flows into the Gulf of Mexico, 480kms downstream. The dimensions of the barrel, the beautiful geological formations, vegetation and fauna (spider monkeys, anteaters, crocodiles and jaguars) are lush. It was an amazing place and I would recommend visiting it to anybody!
This is definitely a place you have to visit! .... Once you arrive into Chepe, the train that takes you to the Canyon, you know it's one of the best trips you'll ever take! And once you arrive you'll be (I'll bet!) speechless! ... it is definitely the best scenery to be found in Mexico.
An enigmatic and mysterious work of nature, situated in the town of Tecate on the road between Mexicali and Tecate, in Baja California. At more than 1200 meters above sea level you can enjoy the wonderful landscape here.
From the moment you get onto the Chepe train, the adventure begins in the Sierra Tarahumara. Every place will tickle your imagination along with the rising and majestic landscapes from sunrise to sunset. Do not miss a thing. People are very friendly and delicious food is provided. If you want to escape the monotony of life and be inspired by the essence of nature at its best, this is the place to go.
This is a place of relaxation and reflection, calm and mysterious as there is an altar at the end of the barrel where some missionaries conducted mass at the time when there was religious persecution. Now it is a tourist spot, but still quiet
This is a narrow canyon where you can try canyoning, good trekking and get the chance to see some vipers and other snakes. I have made this journey several times with different groups and the last time I took a group of friends who were new to this activity but I enjoyed sharing those important moments.
This is a super experience: we rappelled between 2 mountains, 27 and 18 meters high. There are multiple jumps into high water from any thirteen mountains. There is a slide down a natural underground river crossing. You can 4 by 4 or walk along the forest trail among beautiful landscapes.
To explore the Cañon de la Angostura, start from the mining town of Mina Grande and walk along a path that takes you along the Escanela River towards Cañon de la Angostura and continue to the Puente de Dios. it's one of the most fun and beautiful trips to be had in the Sierra Gorda de Querétaro.
Imagine walking through clear water, admiring the landscape that is becoming more and more beautiful and wild as you progress along the way. When you reach the bridge, you're in the Canyon. The water continues its course and you will be amazed by high walls that form the canyon; every now and then there are wooden stairs that invite you to climb and explore hidden little caves.
If, in addition to nature and peace and quiet, you like canyoning, then this is the place for you. Everything is green and quiet and the only sounds are the river and the birds. The walk continues until you reach a place where you see a natural rock bridge: the Puente de Dio. It is a wonderful and delightfully surprising place. If these pictures are beautiful, just imagine being there. Behind Puente de Dios, there's a waterfall with a 30-meter drop.
For accommodation, there are nearby cottages and campgrounds with bathrooms, palapas, dining rooms, and grills where you can stay to venture into the river. If you're on your own, take the federal highway 120 San Juan River - Xilitla and take the dirt road at kilometer 155 kilometer to the Escanela River. It's a 40-minute walk from the river to the Puente de Dios.
