  • difficult to grasp a canyon that is 27 kms wide and 550 meters deep. It takes 5 to 6 hours of 4x4 to get to the bottom: then excursion with a pro!

  • The great park is a must see for all visitors to the area. The magnificent views along the edge of the canyon are breathtaking. For those more adventurous do the 5 day hike.  more »
