Do you groove on great gorgeous gorges? Going to see one canyon or another is no doubt on most people’s bucket list. If you’re still undecided about which canyon you wish to seem, here is a list of the world’s most incredible canyons to help you make your decision.
1. Dadès Gorge, Morocco
You will get a mesmerizing view of Dadès Valley from the long and winding road between Agoudal and Tamellalt (providing you don’t suffer from motion sickness.) Dadès Gorge is the result of the erosive powers of the Dadès River during storm seasons. It separates the Anti-Atlas and Atlas Mountains. The best time to go hiking here is the spring or fall.
2. The Fish River Canyon, Namibia
The size of the Fish River Canyon alone can inspire awe. The canyon is roughly 26 kilometers (16 miles) wide and 161 kilometers (100 miles) long. It’s approximately 549 meters (1,800 feet) deep.
Local legend claims that a huge snake is responsible for all the canyon’s winding curves. Take the five-day hike from Hobas to Ai-Ais Springs. It’s best attempted from July through mid-October when it’s cooler.
