Copper Canyon doesn’t only offer visitors natural vistas for contemplation and relaxation, it is also a top destination in Mexico for adventurous thrill-seekers who love nothing more than to rappel down a vertical cliff-face many feet high.
In this group of canyons, sometimes reaching depths of over 5,900 feet, those who want to rappel Copper Canyon have plenty of enormous rock walls to choose from.
At Peña del Gigante, located in the northeast section of the park, in the Candameña Canyon and possibly Mexico’s highest vertical cliff face at 2,900 feet, five ideal routes have been designed for lovers of this unique sport.
Not too far from here, Rancho San Lorenzo has various routes, a specialized guide service, and cabin lodges. The third option is in San Juanito, a town near Creel that has a wall with ten routes and varying levels of difficulty, posing a real challenge for rappel enthusiasts.
In each case one can hire specialized guides who can safely lead tours and descents for rappelling in Copper Canyon.
