Barranca de Urique (Urique Cliff)

Creel

Creel is the entrance to Barrancas del Cobre, that owes its name to the material that was extracted from the many mines distributed along 60 thousand kilometers. Here you will find the almost-2-kilometers depth Urique canyon. It’s considered the deepest in Mexico.

If you want to have an almost 360° view of the ravine, we recommend you going to the 2,400 meters (7874 ft) above sea level “Cerro del Gallego” viewpoint where you can have spectacular panoramas of the group of canyons. Enjoy this postcard image filled with pines and oaks that stand in front of the great abyss. Sharpen your eyesight—at the bottom you can see the town of Urique, next to the river that surrounds the depths of the canyon.

You may enjoy your meals in this area as it has “palapas” (palm shelters) and grills. Adventurers will enjoy a hike along its suspension bridge which has an extension suspended in the ravine. Take advantage of being at the highest point of the viewpoint and get great photographs.

Finally, you can explore the Barrancas del Cobre by hiking, horseback riding or, if you aren’t afraid of heights, you can jump from one of its fast zip lines. Your reward will be a flight over one of the most beautiful landscapes.
