Like a gigantic throat which was carved out of the earth by the Apurímac River, this natural wonder is located between the Apurímac region and the Cuzco region in southern Peru. It is considered to be one of the deepest canyons in the world.
The incredibly tall sides of the canyon were carved out over millions of years by the mighty Apurimac, an Amazon River tributary which flows from the Apacheta Ravine on the Misti Volcano in Arequipa, nearly 200 miles southwest. The people who live along the river consider it to be a god.
