Colca Canyon is thought to be the deepest canyon in the world. It competes for the title with another canyon nearby, but according to the latest GPS-enabled measurements, this is the deepest canyon at a depth of over 4000m.



However, everything depends on how you count. The deepest "canyon" without a doubt is the Brahmaputra canyon as the river goes through the Himalaya mountains, but this is considered a "gorge" rather than a canyon - precisely what is the difference, I have no idea. Also, this 4000m depth is attained by taking the deepest point of the canyon and the highest mountain peak, which is hardly a fair assessment. Even though this canyon is over twice the depth of the Grand Canyon, it is not as impressive of a sight, because the Colorado cuts through a plateau, while the Colca River simply passes between mountain peaks.



It takes almost 4 hours to drive to Colca Canyon, so we took a 2 day tour.
