Sumidero Canyon is a narrow and deep canyon surrounded by a national park located just north of the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez in the Mexican state of Chiapas.
The canyon’s creation began around the same time as the Grand Canyon in the U.S. by a crack in the area’s crust and erosion by the Grijalva River, which still runs through it.
The canyon has vertical walls which reach as high as 1000 meters, with the river turning up to ninety degrees during the thirteen kilometers that the narrow passage runs.
