Mexico's famed Copper Canyon offers a number of activities for the tourists who visit there every year.
The canyon is located high in the Sierra Tarahumara which is one of the most beautiful regions in the country.
In late 2010 the Copper Canyon Adventure park began operations, serving tourists with a gondola ride and a zip line with seven stages and two suspension brdges that allows visitors to soar above the treetops.
In addition, there are walking, cycling and horse back tours to the bottom of the canyon, some of which take from three hours to a number of days.
The park is within walking distance of hotels on the rim at Areponapuchi at the Posada Barrancas train station.
You can take a tram ride for a bird’s eye view of the canyon and the river below (about $25 round trip) or you can take a ride on the park's zip-line - the second longest in the world.
During the half-day excursion you will traverse several side canyons in seven stations and walk over two swinging bridges. It is an unforgettable trip.
Visitors can also try the obstacle course with rappelling, rock climbing and horizontal traverses.
Blogger Craig Zabransky had this to say about the zip-line on his blog at: http://www.stayadventurous.com/2013/03/copper-canyon-adventure-park-susp..., "Sure, for some, the beauty of this Mexican treasure is best appreciated from the train through the Copper Canyon region or perhaps with a cocktail during sunset at a Copper Canyon overlook. I did both. But if you want to experience the Copper Canyon up close, consider the zip-line experience and walking the wooden planks on this bridge. I am SO glad I did. stay adventurous, Craig"
