When they happen they happen over 453 metres, but it takes a lot of rain to get them going. These falls, the tallest in Mexico, and the 11th tallest in the world, run spectacularly off Candamena Canyon in the Copper Canyon ‘range’. The English translation is ‘Flying Stone’ but no one is really sure what it refers to. The flow gets going mid summer-early autumn.
