Where is the Copper Canyon?
The Copper Canyon, or Barranca del Cobre, is a massive canyon system in the northwestern state of Chihuahua, Mexico. It’s part of the American Cordillera mountain chain that stretches from North America all the way to South America.
The Copper Canyon, although much larger than the Grand Canyon in the U.S., is better known as the backdrop to one of the most scenic train rides in the world, El Chepe.
El Chepe plots a course from Chihuahua to Los Mochis, right through the canyon system, delivering breathtaking views to its riders. Along the way it makes a few stops where travellers can disembark and spend a few days further exploring the Copper Canyon or simply relax and take in more of the incredible views. The map shows the Chepe route and major stops.
