Cotahuasi canon is a gorgeous off the beaten path travel destination in southern Peru. It is said to be the deepest canon in the world, nearly twice as deep as the grand canon. Although there is some debate whether Cotahuasi canon or Colca canon is deeper, either way Peru still has the deepest canons in the world. Awesome right? This canon is a must see if you are in or near Arequipa and very budget friendly place as there are not many tourists that visit here. Not only can you do day hikes in the canon, but multi day treks are also available and there is no park fee!
