More than three and a half kilometres from the highest edge to the floor, this is the world’s deepest canyon. To set the scene clearly imagine it surrounded by raging rivers ending in waterfalls, draping bridges, forests of puya and cactus and with snow capped mountains and the Coropuna Volcano looming behind it.
